The hospitality industry is one of the largest in Australia, predominately made up of small to medium businesses that provide a range of accommodation, food and beverage services. The inter-related nature of hospitality means that many businesses operate across sectors within the industry and across complementary industries such as tourism, travel and events. They are a major employer, supporting the skill development of younger workers who are central to Australia’s economic and social development. Occupations within the hospitality industry are diverse and include barista, chef, cook, front office clerk, housekeeping attendant, kitchen hand, manager, marketing and promotion officer and waiter.
