If you’ve always had a desire for adventure, exploring new places, event management and hospitality then a career in tourism and hospitality could be for you. You could find yourself flying to faraway places as a member of the cabin crew, managing large-scale events or being an expert tour guide of exciting places, either at home or abroad.
Language skills can be useful in this sector, depending on which area you wish to work in, but good communication skills and cultural sensitivity are a necessity as you will be dealing with members of the public. Whichever route you choose, you can be sure of a varied and exciting career that will never fail to give you a challenge.
