Hospitality Market Update 2020 | Jo Walton | Hospitality Jobs | Hospitality Careers

Jo Walton, Hospitality Recruitment Consultant uncovers which jobs across the New Zealand Hospitality sector are in high demand right now.

Demand for hospitality employees across New Zealand typically hits its peak over the summer months as visitors descend upon the most popular regions of Auckland, Queenstown, Canterbury/Christchurch, Rotorua/Bay of Plenty and Wellington. Roles in demand in the hospitality sector include operations and duty managers as well as back office roles in sales and marketing.

Chefs (Chef de Partie or higher) continue to be featured on the NZ Governments list of occupations with long term skill shortages, making the use of foreign skilled workers an attractive option for employers struggling to attract home grown candidates.

Now is a great time to find a role as a chef in New Zealand with plenty of opportunities currently available, paying well.

Hospitality jobs offer many career pathways and the ability to learn transferable skills that are highly desirable locally and abroad.

Looking for your next hospitality role? Please get in touch with Jo who would be pleased to have a confidential discussion with you about roles that would suit your skills.
