Tourism is one of Ireland’s most important and fast-growing industries. A career in tourism includes everything from front-line, operational and management roles through to specialist skills such as business development, finance, digital media and marketing. What’s unique about tourism as a sector is the fact that it is an energetic, entrepreneurial and people-focused industry and one in which you can work in any part of the country. Given significant growth in tourism in recent years, the job market in the sector is expected to grow by 50,000 in the next five years. This means that there will be a diverse range of career opportunities available for people from all backgrounds.
To showcase the breadth and variety of opportunities available in tourism, Fáilte Ireland has launched a new website to provide students, jobseekers, parents and teachers with information on exciting courses and careers.
