Working in our industry

The tourism industry has the potential to replace mining as Australia’s key economic pillar. The current growth in domestic and international tourism is a significant economic driver for Victoria that stimulates job growth, investment in infrastructure projects and further development of local communities.

Visit Victoria forecast that visitor spending in Victoria will reach $36.5b by 2025, up from $25b in 2017. An increasing number of visitors to Victoria, willing to spend more, drive the need for our industry to employ an additional 110,000 people by 2025, to meet the forecasted labour demand.

TAA (Vic) has convened a group of senior industry stakeholders to address the challenge of attracting and retaining great people to work in our industry.
This ‘TAA (Vic) Talent Taskforce’ considers a range of structural and personnel issues that impact the availability of staff for hotels and other tourism related businesses. 

We are currently gathering the thoughts of these stakeholders to agree on strategies that will ensure the industry’s future demand for appropriately skilled staff can be met.
