Choosing a career in tourism

Your choice of career is undoubtedly one of the most important decisions you will ever make. The Collins dictionary describes ‘career’ as ‘a profession or occupation chosen as one’s life work’. Makes sense then to ensure you’re in the right industry from the word go.

Ask people what they want from a career and they may say: ‘job satisfaction’, ‘ the opportunity to work with people’, ‘challenge’, ‘excitement’. Tourism has it all and more, and offers an unparalleled selection of fantastic career opportunities.

If you fancy meeting with interesting people from all over the world, being part of a flight crew heading for an exotic destination, or guiding tourists through the African bush in search of the ‘big five’, then spend a few minutes on the various sections under the “Careers” page on this website.
