About Go with Tourism
Go with Tourism was a government funded initiative that specialised in growing New Zealand's Tourism & Hospitality workforce. It launched in Auckland in April 2019, went nationwide in 2020 and wrapped up in October 2023.
Go with Tourism's two key objectives:
To connect great talent with quality employers
Go with Tourism offered jobseekers and employers free tools for job search and recruitment, as well as mentorship or work experience programmes to connect students with fantastic opportunities.
To get Kiwis thinking positively about Tourism & Hospitality
Stigma surrounds Tourism & Hospitality careers in New Zealand and Go with Tourism carried out a number of workstreams to help educate the public on the successful career opportunities that can be found in the industry.
