At WIRL we love learning about new career pathways. We’ve recently gotten to know The Hotel School who have been educating us on all the amazing careers young people can have in the Hospitality and Tourism industry. We were blown away by the amazing range of careers available and also the management opportunities that quickly open to young people in this growth industry.
The hotel and tourism industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in Australia. Tourism contributes around $40 billion to the Australian economy annually. Forecasts indicate tourist numbers in the Asia Pacific region will grow to 535 million by 2030. The exponential growth in tourism numbers underpins new investment and growth in the hotel industry. The industry will need 123,000 more workers by 2020 and 60,000 of these will be skilled industry positions. In Victoria alone, 27 five star hotel developments are scheduled over the next five years.
