Your dream job could be just a few steps away! Here are some of the program highlights:

  • You will be given step-by-step instructions on how to apply for a Working Holiday Visa (Why spend hours trying to figure out how to apply when we’ve already done it for you?)
  • You will be provided with emergency support (so your parents won’t have to lie awake at night worrying about you)
  • Assistance throughout the entire hiring process
  • Guaranteed 6 month contract with one of our top employers
  • Get special discounts on travel and fun things to do...

Don’t worry! If you do not have your Working Holiday Visa already, as soon as you book your program we will send you step-by-step instructions on “how to apply”. We send participants visa instructions after they have signed their job offers. We do not encourage participants to apply for their visa directly after applying to the program.

To be eligible for the program:

  • You must be a Canadian citizen and resident with a valid CANADIAN PASSPORT to be eligible for this program
  • You must be between the ages of 18 and 30 (and must not turn 31 before Working Holiday Visa is issued)

  • You must have at least 6 months of hospitality experience within the last 3 years.

Previous experience in the hospitality and tourism industry is not necessary but a definite asset. This includes experience in restaurants, hotels, resorts as well as retail experience. Please note that candidates with previous experience as a Front Desk Agent or Guest Services role will be eligible to apply for these positions.

To be eligible for the working holiday visa:

  • You must be able to prove with a bank statement that you have access to approx. $5,000 AUD (in Canadian dollar equivalent) in available funds so that you can “make-do” while you are travelling and working
  • Have never previously entered Australia on a Working Holiday Visa

  • Be outside of Australia at the time the working holiday visa is granted

This program can be extended for one year if you fit the requirements.
