Hospitality worker demand surges to highest level
For the second month in a row, April job listings on SEEK Australia broke records, with 11 industries recording their highest ever job ad volumes, as reported in The Daily Mercury.
According to SEEK's April employment report, trades and services, hospitality and tourism and healthcare and medical topped the list, with job ads up 11.9 per cent month-on-month. Listings also showed an increase of 263.7 per cent year-on-year and 30.9 per cent compared to April 2019 figures.
With this surge in demand, 2021 might be the perfect time to make your start, or upskill with a short (or longer) course at Angliss.
As the specialist centre for foods, hospitality, events and tourism, Angliss offers many training options to support the hospitality industry.
One way to ensure you are work ready is to do a Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) short course.
Our RSA is available online and gives you an immediate qualification and an understanding of the liquor industry and current industry best practices. Courses are regularly available and demand is strong so book now.
As part of its Economic Response to COVID-19, the Australian Government is providing free or low-fee training courses across the nation through its $1 billion JobTrainer Fund.
There are 10 free courses available at Angliss and are on offer for job seekers and young people, including school leavers and those looking to upskill or change careers.
They can now take advantage of subsidised training to learn skills for jobs in demand. Subsidies will also be available to employers to keep apprentices and trainees in work.
The Australian Government has partnered with state and territory governments to establish the $1 billion JobTrainer Fund. The Australian Government is providing $500 million in 2020-21 and this is being matched by contributions from state and territory governments.
