Tasmania is BEAUTIFUL!
The hospitality positions we have available in Tasmania are a great option for a 6 month working holiday, with a salary up to $25/hour and inexpensive housing for staff – great for those wanting to save money. The resorts we are staffing are close to Freycinet National Park, which gets 310 days of sunshine a year- really nice climate. In summer its light till 10.30 at night!
One resort that is hiring was voted best hotel in Australia! The price for guests is $1800-3000 per night. Only 20 rooms, so this place is very intimate. It is luxury, but beautifully designed to blend in with the environment. It is all about guest experience here. With so few guests, the resort expects staff to know all their names and interests to create a personal experience. Staff here need to be friendly, personable and care about guests. No attitude. All meals and drinks (including alcohol) is included, and the chef has been voted in the Top 10 in Australia – the food is amazing! Guests can do lots of free activities. There is a staff of guides for hikes, swimming, kayaking, tours, oyster farming, tasting, etc…
The other resort is the only hotel located within the National Park. It’s on the waters edge with stunning views. Lots of animals in the area! The housekeeping staff have adopted some wallabies who follow them from room to room and wait for scraps to eat. Very cute. There are also lots of wombats, quolls and other native animals. The water is crystal clear you can see the white sand clearly.
The National Park has lots of hikes and walks- from 1 hour to 3 days. Beautiful area. There are lots of camping sites and also other hotels and cabins in the area- though none are in the actual park.
This is Australia’s best kept secret!
Staff accommodation for both these properties is about 5-10 minute drive from the property (or a 30 minute walk along the beach). There are 8 houses on one big property and each one has 4-5 bedrooms. All staff get their own room. Each house is fully furnished, has a kitchen and lounge room. There are laundry facilities for all the house. There is a big area of BBQs and it has a summer camp feel.
A Tasmania resort job is a good option for those who want to save money and also enjoy the outdoors. Lots of hiking, swimming, and great weather over summer. It’s always sunny, with clean fresh air. No pollution, or other bright lights. It is really amazing to sit outside, hear the animals, and look at the stars.APPLY TODAY!
Joint venture announced between U.S.-based cultural exchange organization, Alliance Abroad Group, and Melbourne, Australia-based Work Intern Travel.
The partnership between Alliance Abroad Group and Work Intern Travel will offer dedicated recruitment services and support to Australian businesses facing staffing shortages.
Austin, TX (November 29, 2012) – Alliance Abroad Group (AAG), a long-standing cultural exchange organization based in Austin, Texas, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Work Intern Travel (WIT), a recruitment services company based in Melbourne, Australia. The joint venture aims to provide hospitality and tourism industry employers within Australia access to experienced temporary and seasonal staff amid an unprecedented shortage of local hospitality workers.
“This partnership will allow us to deliver on-the-ground, personalized support to employers filling their vacant positions by way of our Work Experience Australia program,” said James Bell, President of Alliance Abroad Group. “As the businesses that we work with identify a need, WIT will serve as the local representative in Australia that can directly respond to the unique requirements of each employer.”
Earlier this year, AAG launched Work Experience Australia, a first-of-its-kind cultural exchange program that provides an innovative solution to two emerging problems. In the U.S., graduates are faced with limited employment opportunities and average starting salaries that continue to decline year over year. The Australia Tourism Export Council (ATEC) estimates that Australia has a surplus of nearly 34,000 available jobs in the tourism and hospitality industry. Through their program, AAG actively recruits worldwide and pre-screens hospitality graduates, matching qualified candidates to appropriate employers across Australia and guaranteeing paid positions prior to arrival.
“AAG’s collaboration with WIT will allow for more focused attention and support on the employer side of the program,” adds Victoria Lynden, Founder and CEO of Alliance Abroad Group. “Additionally, by joining forces with a local and experienced team, we will be better positioned to address shortages in all sectors of business throughout Australia.”
“The timing is perfect for this business,” states Frank Scerri, Managing Director of Work Intern Travel. “Alliance Abroad Group has an exceptional reputation for placing quality applicants around the world and providing top-notch customer support. Our involvement allows the business to not only shorten response times involved when operating in different time zones, but enables us to increase value offered to participating employers as we add our expertise of the local climate and culture.”
Scerri brings over 10 years of industry experience to the joint relationship having founded Overseas Working Holidays before selling it to Flight Centre Ltd, Australia’s biggest travel company.
The new joint venture officially launches December 1, 2012.
