As workforce shortages look set to continue in 2022, tourism and hospitality providers are invited to meet with local workers who are ready and equipped with the basic skills required to enter the industry, as part of Tourism WA’s Hospitality Job Connect Program.
The 5-day Hospitality introductory course is aimed at High School Year 12 Non ATAR and ATAR, and Year 11, as well as those seeking to work in the industry, and aims to train local people for jobs in the Margaret River Region.
Renowned chef Tony Howell and South Regional TAFE Margaret River will lead the program, which will deliver a range of exciting nationally accredited elements, including:
- Customer service training
- Barista (coffee making) skills
- Safe food handling techniques
- CV support/work readiness tips
- Masterclasses led by chef Tony Howell
- Onsite days at two local hospitality venues
- Statement of attainment for successfully completed units
On the final day of the program, local employers are invited to attend a morning tea to connect with the job-ready participants. Employers in the Margaret River Region with job vacancies available are encouraged to register their interest in attending.
When: Friday 3 December
Time: 10:30am – 12:00pm
Where: The River Hotel, 40 Wallcliffe Rd, Margaret River
At the event, businesses will be asked to give a quick 2 minute introduction, detailing their current job vacancies and types of candidates they are looking for.
If your business has job vacancies but cannot attend on the day, please complete the registration process and follow the alternative options to provide a job listing.
