Hamiltonians: Have you considered a career in tourism?Posted on 20/06/2018 by Jess O'Connor
Tourism is growing fast in Hamilton and the Waikato, making it an attractive career option for local school leavers and anyone passionate about travel.
Several jobs are expected to be created over the coming years, with the industry set to receive further support from Tourism New Zealand.
“Tourism New Zealand want to help the Hamilton & Waikato region grow by $1 billion per annum by developing, implementing and promoting strategies that are regionally-focussed and align with gateways like Auckland which connect the region to the world,” Tourism New Zealand chief executive Stephen England-Hall told Stuff.co.nz.
These comments come after Tourism New Zealand held a board meeting in Hamilton, where key representatives had the opportunity to see the region’s growth first-hand.
Hamilton & Waikato Tourism chief executive Jason Dawson told Stuff this was a “fantastic opportunity” for the region.
“It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our region to the Tourism New Zealand board, and share some of the opportunities and challenges we face as an emerging visitor destination,” Mr Dawson said.
Waikato currently is the fifth most lucrative tourism region in the country, behind Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.
If you’re passionate about showcasing the region and you love working with people, a career in tourism could be for you.
