The last time you travelled anywhere, experienced being a tourist in a new place, or even enjoyed hospitality in your local town, all the countless employees you met along the way were involved in the travel and tourism industry.
Travel and Tourism is all about accommodation, food, drink, hotels and restaurants. It’s about tourists, holiday makers and customer service. It includes classic jobs like restaurant and hotel staff, concierges, kitchen staff, customer service employees, and entertainment organisers, and the joy in this career is often in where you are and who you’re working with. Recreation workers could be employed in luxurious countries; tour and travel guides could be anywhere, talking about anything; and Air cabin crews and cruise ship staff will find themselves travelling the world.
