Youth on Gold Coast Urged to Join Hospitality Sector


With more than 60 vacant trainee and apprentice chefs positions open on the Gold Coast, young people are being urged to look into a career in the hospitality sector.

There is currently a skills shortage in this sector and as the summer and Christmas rush approaches, the shortages are expected to worsen.

With youth unemployment currently at 12 per cent, young people are encouraged to consider one of the many hospitality opportunities available.

Keep in mind that you will need to get an RSA certificate first if you plan on working in a licensed venue or if your job will involve serving alcohol.
