Top 20 Most In-Demand Hospitality and Tourism Jobs in Queensland
Rover is used by recruitment agencies to find leads, identify opportunities, match talent, and give you access to a wealth of data, at your fingertips, that will aid in both your decision making and your conversions. It’s why so many agencies find their profits increase exponentially and their time management improves dramatically once they have integrated Rover into their service process.
But for those that have never tried Rover before, it can be difficult to visualise why it is such a valuable tool. So we want to present to you a visualisation we created to show how granular Rover can get, and why it can be such a tremendous advantage to Australian recruitment companies interested in improving their business:
We decided to take a look at the top 20 most common positions open within the tourism/hospitality field – specifically those located in Queensland. Rover has the ability to identify even more specific locations, but let’s look at Queensland as a whole for now.
From here, we also made a list of which companies have the most open positions.
This is an interactive dashboard. You can click on one of the businesses, and it will show you which positions they have open, or click on a career and it will show you which companies are hiring for that position.
Now, imagine you are a recruiter that specialises in, for example, restaurant management. Using this visualisation, you are able to see which businesses are currently hiring restaurant managers and how many positions are available. This would give you the information you need to contact these companies and match them with the appropriate employees.
Rover lets you search even deeper than this, helping you filter out recruiter-open jobs, find out which companies are paying more, identifying specific qualifications to see if your talent meets them, and so on, all for essentially any job in any industry in all of Australia.
If you’re a recruitment agency ready to see how Rover can benefit you, contact our sales team today.

New $15 million program to draw women and girls to sport
The $15 million Active Women and Girls Program has been launched, designed to boost participation opportunities for women and girls including playing, coaching, volunteering, umpiring and team management.
The program will assist clubs, local governments, and state-level sport and active recreation organisations to attract more women and girls to become involved through initiatives such as development programs for female coaches, targeted activities to grow female participation or mentoring by and for female athletes among others.
Applications for the Active Women and Girls Program will open on 20 November 2023 and close on 6 March 2024.
The program was launched during the Oceania Rugby Sevens tournament which is a qualifying event for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and is supported by the Queensland Government as part of its program to secure major events on the pathway to the 2032 Brisbane Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Queensland is also building a powerful reputation in women’s rugby. The Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) women’s Rugby Sevens program, in collaboration with Queensland Rugby Union (QRU), continues to deliver a strong representation to the highly successful national team.
Half of the gold medal winning squad from Rio 2016 were Queenslanders, many of whom came through the QAS and QRU pathways.
The QAS invests almost $540,000 a year to support the Rugby Sevens program, which includes the employment of expert performance support staff as well as high performance coaching.
Rick Ross is hiring a flight attendant. We asked real ones about the job.
The salary is higher than the average commercial flight attendant job, but a lowball figure in the private jet world.
If you’ve ever wanted to travel like a rapper and get paid for it, dust off your résumé. Artist, entrepreneur and pear enthusiast William Leonard Roberts II — better known as Rick Ross — is hiring a flight attendant for his private jet.
Earlier this week, Ross posted the job listing of sorts to his Instagram stories .
“Yo what’s up it’s the biggest boss in the game. Right behind me is Maybach Air,” Ross said in the video, pointing to the customized Gulfstream G550 private jet he debuted this summer. Across its side, his name “RICK RO$$” is embossed in gold. “And for the very first time, the boss Ricky Rozay is looking for his own personal flight attendant.”
According to Ross, the annual salary for the “personal cabin attendant” will range $85,000 to $115,000. Qualifications for the job run the gamut. Applicants must have prior flight attendant experience, “that positive vibe,” a desire to “travel the world” and “be about our business,” Ross said. “Let’s be professional.”
Will dressing up get you first class? Flight attendants debunk old myths.
Additionally, “you gotta be able to prepare the cuisine, serve the cuisine. I’ve had a seizure on the plane before , you gotta be able to handle the CPR.”
Ross encouraged: “Serious vibes only. Serious inquiries only.”
So how does the gig stack up? We went to real flight attendants to find out.
View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rick Ross (@richforever)
Let’s start with the salary. While Ross’s range is higher than the average for commercial flight attendants, it’s a lowball figure in the corporate flight attendant world.
“What I’ve seen running flight staffing and recruitment, the salaries are higher for an account of that nature, especially if you want someone experienced,” said Jamie Gibson , a chef and private flight attendant. “If you live on the East Coast or West Coast, you’re getting up to $200,000 ... and that’s not even including benefits and whatnot.”
To better determine if you’re getting a good deal, D.C.-based flight attendant Alejandro Contreras, who’s been on the job for nine years, says applicants should ask in their interview whether they get per diems or travel expenses paid.
“You would also have to factor in ‘Hey am I going to have to pay for my own accommodations ... am I staying where you guys stay?’” Contreras said. “That would make a huge difference.”
Mini Crock-Pots and meal prep: How flight attendants eat on a plane
Commercial flight attendant Elizabeth Simpson says she’s heard too many horror stories from friends who work on private jets with high-profile customers to be tempted by the Ross job. For starters, “it’s posted on social media as like a cattle call versus going through an actual agency,” said Simpson, who’s been flying for eight years.
And unlike a commercial flight attendant with a set schedule plus the opportunity to pick up extra shifts, you’ll likely need to be ready around-the-clock for Ross.
“You might be snuggled up in bed and get the call ‘Hey, I need you to be at the airfield in a few hours. We have to go to Dubai,’” Simpson said.
And given the rapper’s lyrics and public persona, the new job listing does bring up questions of workplace issues. Ross issued a public apology in 2017 for saying he doesn’t hire female artists because he would have sex with them. Where could a flight attendant take potential complaints? Is there a Maybach Music H.R. department?
According to reports from Simple Flying , jets like Ross’s cost somewhere in the $15 million to $20 million range, are powered by two Rolls-Royce engines and can seat up to 19 passengers. For the flight attendant on duty, that’s a lot of passengers to serve.
“Not only are you usually required to cook on a private jet, but you’re also in charge of getting all of the things that you’re going to need for the client ahead of time,” Simpson said.
How Las Vegas transformed into an F1 racetrack
Gibson agrees. While specific roles and responsibilities vary from client to client, private flight attendants tend to be “the primary caretaker of that aircraft,” she said. “Stocking it, replenishing it, taking the inventory, making sure that expiration dates are still current. There’s a lot more that goes into it that is off duty.”
“It’s kind of like being an estate manager,” she added.
A rap mogul is not your average frequent flier; peanuts and pretzels are not likely to cut it when it comes to in-flight dining. (Although takeout from Wingstop, Rally’s or Checkers might, as Ross is a franchisee .)
“They might have something extravagant in mind,” Simpson said. “If he wants to have a hibachi-themed dinner, you’re going to have to go to YouTube or TikTok to learn how to hibachi real quick because he’s trying to impress his clients.”
Celebrities use private jets excessively. It’s a climate nightmare.
Beyond standard tasks like keeping crew and passengers safe and keeping up with Ross’s many endorsements , the ideal candidate will also likely have to sign a nondisclosure agreement.
“One of the pillars of being a corporate flight attendant is discretion,” Gibson said.
Which begs the question: If you get to fly around the world with Rick Ross but you can’t post about it, is it even worth it?
“It sounds great on paper until you actually get down to the nitty-gritty and you have to fulfill those requests,” Simpson said.
Goats added to Queensland Rail's fleet to manage bushfire hazards on difficult blocks
A herd of goats has "annihilated" weeds posing a fire risk in inaccessible terrain in a third of the time they were given to get the job done.
- An expert says using goats to manage vegetation is risky but has benefits
- The goats can access hard-to-reach terrain but require regular welfare checks
- The vegetation, once digested, is unlikely to grow again so allows for new planting
Queensland Rail (QR) added the herd to its fleet to tame weeds and grass near railway lines at an overgrown site near Tully, 113 kilometres south of Cairns in Far North Queensland.
The 15 goats in the trial were initially given a deadline of eight to 12 weeks to finish the task.
"It's been four weeks and they've annihilated the three different parts of that area," QR vegetation manager Glenn Withers said.
Mr Withers said the land between the tracks and Banyan Creek was mostly inaccessible, unusable, and overgrown.
The block is awkward
QR said the two-metre-high and dry grass across the two-hectare site became a fire risk and was revegetated with less flammable native flora.
But the last half-hectare was raised and overgrown with environmental weeds which were choking the wattles and rainforest plants.
In discussing potential solutions with landscaping contractors Norveg, Mr Withers said the successful use of goats chomping down growth alongside a Victorian railway was raised.
"We just wanted to see what they'd eat, what they wouldn't eat, and how quickly they do it," he said.
Mr Withers said while goats were not suitable for mowing every part of the QR network he was now eyeing a 20-hectare site in Townsville covered in the invasive but highly nutritious weed leucaena.
"Who knows? With fencing and funding we could probably put them in the general rail corridor in some parts as well," he said.
Leave no trace
Norveg co-owner Christina Forrest said a goat's anatomy with its four stomachs, nimbleness, and appetite gave the animal an advantage over traditional slasher methods.
"The way they chew the seeds of the weed heads and the flowers and the plant itself, they destroy most of the seed," she said.
"In the long run it's going to cut back on a need for slashing and use of herbicides consistently."
But Ms Forrest said the job was not straightforward as the site needed inspections, fencing, cameras, and daily visits.
"They don't ask to get paid very much but they do ask that you check on their welfare," she said.
"They need to be kept safe and fed and watered and safe from predators."
Ms Forrest said the goats were not suited to all land clearing purposes because of environmental and animal welfare risks.
"They're a very good option for steep areas such as banks, gullies, hills, uneven terrain — that kind of area where it's hard for machinery, or even humans, to access," she said.
Royal Society of NSW fellow Angela Moles said goats could be a better option than machinery and chemicals depending on the environmental conditions.
But she said there is a general reluctance to introduce non-native animals to new ecosystems.
"Having goats loose in your national parks or whatever is a terrible idea because they are generalists, and they'll damage quite a lot of different types of plants," Professor Moles said.
"I am still overall enthusiastic as long as the fencing around the railway land is really good."
