Young Tourism Leaders

1 July, 2019 –

Calling all young tourism industry professionals: nominations are now open for the 2019 intake of Young Tourism Leaders (YTL).

This is a terrific opportunity to share your tourism experience and wisdom with aspiring high school students considering a career in the industry.

Past YTL leaders include Amanda, General Manager for Capricorn Caves in Rockhampton. As a YTL leader, Amanda delivered presentations at Queensland schools, vocational and tertiary institutions, careers events and tourism industry events, to demonstrate what a career in the tourism industry can offer. See the video below to hear her story.

Tourism in Queensland generates $25 billion in revenue and supports 217,000 wide-ranging jobs – from media and marketing specialists, accountants, lawyers, hospitality roles, tour guides, pilots, flight attendants, boat captains, finance specialists, travel agents, event managers and many more.

YTL nominations close 26 July 2019.
