Summer workforce campaign promotes benefits of working in tourism and hospitality

Sarah Courtney,Minister for Tourism, Hospitality and Events

A new campaign encouraging under 25s and early retirees to work in tourism and hospitality has been launched in a bid to boost the industry workforce ahead of the summer visitor season.

Tasmania’s tourism and hospitality sector offers a range of exciting and rewarding roles, with benefits including flexible working hours, on-the-job training and the opportunity to showcase everything that is great about our State.

The new online job portal will help to connect tourism and hospitality businesses with potential employees, and the many opportunities available for job seekers of all ages in Tasmania.

This initiative aims to provide employers and local businesses with a free and fast way to connect with potential employees to make it easier for jobseekers to browse, seek training and employment.

As part of the campaign, a new digital, print and radio marketing campaign will run throughout the summer period to promote the job portal to potential employees.

It is targeted at younger Tasmanians who are finishing school, looking for work during their summer holidays or seeking to take a gap year and retirees looking for part-time work and whose valuable experience and skills can support businesses.

The Summer Workforce project has received grant funding from the Australian Government under the Recovery for Regional Tourism program, an initiative of the $1 billion COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Fund.

It is an initiative of the T21 partnership delivered jointly by the Tasmanian Liberal Government and its tourism and hospitality industry partners.

Job seekers can search and apply for tourism and hospitality jobs now by visiting www.tastourismandhospitalityjobs.com.au.
