Are you considering a career in the hospitality and tourism industry? In a recent update, the Bank of Greece confirmed that the country has made a remarkable recovery in the tourism sector. Business expectations within areas such as food and beverage and accommodation returned to positive figures, some even surpassing pre-Covid levels. The number of new permits for the construction of new hotels rose by 51.2% compared to 2020.
The Bank of Greece reported that: “Growth is projected to be 5.0 percent in 2022, and 3.9 percent in 2023, subject to continued strong support from international tourism, Euro area recovery, and an acceleration of investment.” The hospitality and tourism industry is playing a key role in bolstering the Greek economy.
Earlier this year, Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias announced that the tourism dynamic in Greece is changing, as tour operators and airlines aim to prolong the season from March to December. This is great news for the hundreds of thousands of people employed within the industry since seasonal jobs will have a more appealing duration and employment opportunities will increase.
So, with the industry bouncing back at full steam, there is no better time than the present to embark on a thrilling career with global appeal. What better place to get started than at a seaside campus in Greece! Just imagine being taught and trained within an actual seaside resort, and then having the qualifications and confidence to apply almost anywhere!
