QLD Tourism & Hospitality Career Guide

The Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) has partnered with the Queensland Government and industry operators and trainers to develop the Tourism and Hospitality Career Guide, launched by Tourism Minister Kate Jones on Friday 22 July during the Salute to Excellence student awards presentation.

QTIC Chief Executive said the QTIC Tourism and Hospitality Career Guide will showcase the variety of career opportunities within Queensland’s $23b tourism industry.

“Queensland’s tourism industry is the state’s second largest export earner, contributing $23 billion to the total Gross State Product*,” said Mr Gschwind.

“Ever growing visitation figures deliver even greater employment opportunities for tourism and hospitality and it is expected the Australian tourism industry will require an additional 10,500 skilled workers by 2020**.

“The QTIC Tourism and Hospitality Career Guide is aimed at inspiring Queenslanders to get involved in a broad range of opportunities in one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy.

“The future of Queensland’s tourism and hospitality industry relies on an inspired and committed workforce. Many young people and people changing careers are looking for the kind of employment opportunities offered by tourism and hospitality.”

The Guide has been developed with the support of the Department of Tourism, Major Events, Small Business and the Commonwealth Games, and the Department of Education and Training. Tourism Minister Kate Jones said the Queensland tourism industry will require a new tech savvy and skilled workforce going forward.

“Queensland’s tourism industry is booming and we are ideally placed to take advantage of a growing digitally-connected Asian tourism market,” Ms Jones said. “We are working on building the digital capabilities of our tourism industry and a young, skilled and tech savvy workforce will make a significant difference to what we offer visitors.

“We have a $12 billion tourism infrastructure pipeline and with the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games fast approaching, there are a huge range of opportunities for students to kick start a career in tourism here in Queensland.”

The Guide will be distributed to all senior schools in Queensland, and is available online at www.qtic.com.au, highlighting the variety of career options for school leavers across Queensland.

The Guide was launched at the annual Salute to Excellence Awards presentation where top-performing VET in School students from throughout Queensland were recognised for their early achievements and rewarded with money-can’t-buy work experience, scholarships, prizes and opportunities to connect with employers.

Tourism contributes $23 billion in expenditure to the Queensland economy and employs more than 230,000 people.2016 QTIC Press 006

QTIC is the peak industry body for tourism in Queensland, acting as “The Voice of Tourism”. QTIC is a private sector, membership-based organisation which, since 2001, has worked to influence and shape the state’s tourism business environment.
