At the Australian Hotels Association – Western Australia (AHA) free seminar, event leaders are presenting the opportunities for chefs and Irish people under 30 to travel and work in Western Australia.
AHA chief exective officer Bradley Woods said the free seminars would be aimed at young Irish people looking to travel and gain overseas experience "in one of the most extraordinary places in the world".
He said without this action by the AHA there would be an absence of any support for the hospitality industry in addressing critical labour and skills shortages.
“What we are saying to young people in Ireland is ‘if you are an enthusiastic and experienced hospitality worker willing to travel to Western Australia then there may be a position waiting for you,’ so far the response to that message has been fantastic.
“We are not seeking skilled migrants looking for permanent resident visas, nor are we looking to replace local West Australians in hospitality. The AHA continues to promote careers in hospitality to young people here in WA.”
