We connect great businesses with outstanding people, specialising in executive recruitment, contracting gigs, and talent development.
Tourism Talent is different, firstly we’re tourism professionals who understand the industry and the needs of tourism operators. You don’t need to explain to us how distribution works, and what MICE stands for – we get it, and we love it!
Tourism Talent can provide executive level professionals with experience in finance, culture, change management, sales and marketing.
Whether you need a short-term contractor or a more permanent solution, there are many advantages of tapping into the ‘Gig Economy’.
Contact us to access our extensive network across New Zealand and Australia of experienced governance professionals.
Naturally, we at Tourism Talent believe careers in the tourism industry are incredible. But unfortunately, the opportunities a career in tourism can provide are often misunderstood or simply not known to those outside of tourism. We are determined to change that!
