Comments

While the supply is sufficient to meet the demand for lower skilled hospitality roles (waiters/bar staff and catering assistants), the availability of persons willing to take up those roles is expected to be negatively affected by the greater availability of job opportunities across other growing sectors. (Note: Unless otherwise stated, these comments are based on the findings published in the National Skills Bulletin 2017).
