Junior tourism jobs are not too hard to get. Hospitality and bar work is constantly competitive, as it can provide a great part-time option for those who need work with a flexible schedule. However, there is also usually a surplus of vacancies in those sectors to meet this demand.
Tourism graduate schemes are good options for travel and tourism graduates who aren’t sure what they want to specialise in. Often rotational, they can help you try to pinpoint what area of the industry you think you could best thrive in. If you don’t manage to get onto a graduate scheme, it is worth seeking other routes to try and land some work experience or volunteering work.
Due to the customer-facing nature of much of this work, employers want to be able to trust your ability to communicate well with paying customers. Being able to clearly demonstrate that you’ve successfully handled large and potentially challenging groups of customers will go a long way to helping you secure entry level tourism jobs.
