Virtual Tourism and Hospitality Career Expo

Posted: 8th Jun

Are you looking for a job in the tourism or hospitality industry?

The tourism and hospitality industry is experiencing a staff shortage, so if you’re looking for work in this field, now is your chance to get a foot in the door.

Both the Queensland and Australian governments have announced measures to support the industry. The Federal Government’s budget announcement allows foreign students to work more hours, as well as extend their visas for a year if they take up jobs in the tourism and hospitality industry. The State Government has also unveiled $7.5 million in incentives to attract interstate tourism staff.

The Queensland Tourism Industry Council’s Virtual Career Expo on Tuesday 15 June 2021 can also help you find your next great opportunity. Across Central Queensland, and the broader Queensland region, local businesses are looking for new employees to join their teams.

With holidaymakers enjoying their own backyard and seeing Australia this year, the local tourism and hospitality industry is suffering from a worker shortage including hotel cleaners, chefs in restaurants and cafes and reef guides, to name just a few of the opportunities.

The Expo will showcase Queensland tourism and hospitality employers with current job vacancies. You’ll have the opportunity to get in front of high profile, significant industry leaders.

You can also connect with booth holders through live chats and video meetings or visit the jobs board for statewide employment opportunities in the tourism and hospitality industry.

Live speakers and career development content will be available throughout the day and following the event.
