Tourism and Hospitality Job Opportunities

We are particularly pleased about winning approval for the Travel, Tourism, and Hospitality Management qualifications shown above, as our research had indicated that demand for these will increase rapidly for the rest of this decade.

This is confirmed by figures published by the UK government in November, which reveal that new jobs in the Travel, Tourism and Hospitality sectors contributed over 1/3rd of the total of new jobs created in the last 2 years, and it is forecast that this contribution will grow larger over the coming years.

Worldwide, the forecasts are even more positive, as it is estimated that there will be an additional 70 million jobs created in these sectors over the next decade.

This means that there will continue to be substantial job opportunities, and progression opportunities, for those working in these sectors who have internationally recognised professional qualifications.
For more on this positive and encouraging news, please see:

Global forecast: 2014 Outlook on Travel & Tourism on the Deloitte website.
