Tourism jobs ‘coming in quick’ for ITC students & graduatesPosted on 10/09/2020 by Jess O'Connor
One of the biggest perks of studying with ITC is it gives you access to exclusive job opportunities – both when you’re studying and for a lifetime once you graduate.
The ITC Student Jobs Page lists job roles that are open to ITC students & graduates ONLY.
“These jobs are relevant jobs in the industry from trusted employers who are looking for their next star employee,” says ITC Marketing Manager Mel Jenkins.
“There are currently over 15 job vacancies listed, and more jobs are coming in quick.”
Some of the current job vacancies include:
- Assistant Customs Officer – Maritime – Customs
- Cruise Attendant / Vehicle Ferry Ticket Collectors – GreatSights Bay of Islands
- Hotel Britomart – Room Attendant
- Hotel Britomart – Porter
- Travelodge Wynyard Quarter – Night Auditor
- Contact Centre 3 months – Skycity
- Porter – QT Hotel Auckland
- YMCA – 2 x Duty Managers
- Receptionist – QT
- Guide – Ecozip CHC
- Director of Chaos – QT AKL
- Room Attendant – Grand Millennium AKL
- Zipline Guide – Ecozip Adventures Waiheke
- Front Office/Receptionist – Heritage Paihia
- Zipline guide – Christchurch Adventure Park
- Crew Member – Scenic Boat Cruise Taupo
To be eligible to apply for any of these opportunities, you must be an ITC student or graduate.
The next intake for Level 3 is September 14 – this qualification could be a good option for those who wish to combine work and study.
“Our Level 3 qualification is very work-friendly, and several of the current job opportunities are part-time vacancies,” explains Mel.
“If you’d like to work while you study, we can help you achieve this goal.”
Job support beyond graduation
Support with finding your next dream job doesn’t stop when you graduate. ITC Employment Consultants Sarndra & Nicky have ongoing relationships with many graduates, and are helping some into their second, third, fourth, and even fifth jobs out in the industry.
“All our graduates are very appreciative of our continued support, even if they graduated some years ago,” says Mel.
Exclusive industry connections
As well as job opportunities, we also arrange work experience for students to get a taste of the industry.
Work experience often results in paid employment, as was the case for one ITC student last month – who has now been offered a casual position because of his efforts on a work experience placement.
ITC also arranges for guest speakers to regularly come into college and present to students. For example, Kelly Tawhai the Business Development Manager for House Of Travel recently came in to speak about her journey through the industry.
“Kelly started out studying at ITC, so she was in a great position to share her expertise with our current cohort,” says Mel.
CV support and advice
ITC also provides advice, training and support around writing CVs and cover letters, as well as attending job interviews.
“Our number one goal as a training provider is to assist students to find employment in the tourism industry once they graduate,” says Mel.
“We do this by combining classroom study with practical interactive role plays, work experience, and industry visits to prepare students as best as we can for ‘real work’.”
