Queens University Work Shadowing Week – Queen’s University is holding it’s Work Shadowing Week from Monday 25th – Thursday 28th March 2024.  It presents an excellent opportunity for tourism and hospitality businesses to showcase the great range of roles in our sector to Queen’s students. Employers get to choose a day to host up to 10 students (minimum of 3) to give them an insight into their organisation and sector and observe professionals in practice.  To take part in this programme please complete the form here before Monday 22nd January 2024.

Promote your vacancies via Queens University Platform ‘My Future’ – Advertise opportunities for free through the QUB online career management platform, MyFuture.

Match-Funded Summer Internships – Queen’s University is offering NI-based SMEs, charities, public and third sector organisations the opportunity to host a summer intern from Queen’s, with 50% of the salary reimbursed by the University up to a maximum of £1,500 (or £3,000 for internships offered to students from a Widening Participation background). Express your interest by Monday 22nd January 2024 here.

Tell your story to Tourism NI – Tourism NI want to hear your stories. They are searching for passionate people who would be happy to share their career journey, regardless of the path they took to get there. They are particularly looking for Entry-Level from school or university, career switches from a different sector, working after retirement, returners after a career break and unique and usual day day-day jobs that may surprise people! Tourism NI would like to share some of these stories with local media and on digital share, to inspire people across Northern Ireland to consider a job in travel, tourism and hospitality.
