Holiday Parks & Resorts

If you love hanging out in beautiful locations, getting outdoors and interacting with people then you might want to consider working in holiday parks and resorts.

You could be part of the front line team, welcoming guests and making their holiday an experience to remember. Grounds keeping and maintenance might suit you if you’re handy. Or, if you’re business savvy and a great leader, you could be a park manager overseeing the whole business.

RV Manufacturing, Retailing & Services

A key part of the caravanning and camping industry is the recreational vehicle manufacturing, retail and repair sector, which is growing every year. With over 600,000 RVs currently registered in Australia and around 20,000 new RVs being manufactured every year, this is an industry with great opportunities for job seekers.

RVs include state of the art motorhomes, caravans and 5th wheelers to more affordable camper trailers and tent trailers. And don’t forget all the cool accessories in between. If you love working with your hands, designing and building great products or you’re great with people and want to work in sales and marketing, consider a career in the RV industry.

Training & Development

There are nationally-recognised, accredited qualifications from Certificate II right through to Advanced Diplomas available across the industry to suit everyone.
