Tourism is New Zealand’s largest industry and as the sector continues to grow so do the amazing career opportunities within it.

The tourism and hospitality industry is on the lookout for highly skilled, enthusiastic young people to become the business managers, leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

At QRC we are extremely proud of our student outcomes, 97% of QRC graduates proceed directly into the industry or on to further study.

This strong graduate employment rate can be attributed to our hands-on, practical approach to learning and strong industry partnerships.

QRC’s programmes prepare graduates to enter the industry in diverse range of departments and roles. This includes marketing, sales, operations, food production, risk & safety, human resources, finance and many more.

Industry Internships

Industry Internships are a key component of QRC’s diploma programmes, allowing students to put their skills into practice and gain first-hand experience in a leading hotel, resort or tourism operator.

QRC’s dedicated Internship Team is on hand to assist students to find the right placement for their career ambitions and provide job placement preparation.

QRC has industry partners across New Zealand and around the world. Check out our interactive Internship map to see where some of our students have completed their placements.
