A Career in the Australian Hospitality Industry for 2022
Despite (or perhaps due to) the continuing pandemic issues, businesses in the Australian hospitality sector have been experiencing challenges in trying to gain new staff. Half of all employers have been struggling to find the staff they need.
The National Skills Commission, Recruitment Insights Report for June 2021 state that:
- 49% of employers were recruiting or had recruited in the past month
- Employers in the Accommodation and Food Services industry remain the most likely to expect to hire new staff over the next three months
- 50% of employers are still finding it difficult to find staff
According to the Commission, vacancies abound for hospitality workers in business establishments providing these services:
- Cafés and Restaurants
- Takeaway Food Services
- Clubs (Hospitality)
- Pubs, Taverns and Bars
In fact, up to 70% of Takeaway Food Services employers surveyed said that they expect to hire new staff in the coming weeks from the time of this report in June 2021. Additionally, the survey results showed that the “blue collar” population (including Technicians and Trades Workers, Machinery Operators and Drivers, and Labourers) have been the most difficult to recruit.
Given the lack of staffing that businesses in the Hospitality industry are currently experiencing, it would be a very good time to grab a career opportunity in this industry for those who want to do so.
