The benefits of working in Hospitality

Why work in hospitality?

Well, working abroad in hospitality could see you living in some of the world’s most beautiful destinations.  Working in a hospitality job overseas is a fantastic experience that will benefit you in many ways, not least helping you to boost your CV where you can show your hospitality work experience and the training and development that you have gone through. Not only will this, you will also be able to spend the money you earn on enjoying all the activities that may not necessarily be financially accessible if travelling on a budget as a regular backpacker during your gap year.

In many of our Canadian resorts, as well as the resort jobs, you may be offered discounted accommodation, ski passes, food, ski lessons and even equipment. Working in resorts and hotel jobs abroad is a great way to socialise and meet like minded people. You will make friends for life during your gap year job, more than likely from all corners of the world.

Holiday jobs abroad are particularly popular Down Under. If you’re thinking about heading to Australia or New Zealand, there are also jobs available in retail and hospitality businesses.  All your necessary paperwork will be set up and you’ll get shown what the city and surrounding areas have to offer!

Typical hospitality jobs and positions abroad include entry-level hotel jobs such as housekeeping or waiting staff roles in restaurants. The employers we work with like to work with us because they know that they are getting quality staff. You will be well prepared for your season of hospitality work, having been interviewed and briefed thoroughly before departure.

Seasonal jobs are very popular so, whether you are looking for a winter or summer job working in the hospitality sector, Oyster will have a paid job overseas for you.
