Unable to function without your morning coffee? Well, guess what … you’re not the only one!

With busier schedules, more and more of us are relying on our local coffee shops to satisfy those coffee cravings to get us through the day.

As a nation, our increasing bar and coffee culture has resulted in a 23% rise in demand for baristas and bar attendants. Thanks to our changing lifestyles, the jobs boom is now fueled by baristas, beauticians and boot camp instructors. Well done us!

But it gets better…

If you’re from Western Australia, you’re in even more luck!

Perth’s growing tourism and hospitality industry has gotten employers in a frenzy. They’re crying out for more trained hospitality professionals to join the workforce to match this increasing demand.

With the new construction of renowned hotels such as Ritz-Carlton and DoubleTree by Hilton and growing hospitality and entertainment precincts such as Elizabeth Quay, we’re all bracing ourselves for an influx of hospitality jobs.

Don’t believe me? Here’s some statistics to whet your appetite.

By 2020, the demand for waiters, bar attendants and baristas, is expected to grow by over 41,000 workers. In fact, it’s expected that skilled workers will be highly demanded by chefs, cafes and restaurants, reaching 7,603 and 5,365 workers respectively.

So, there you have it folks. If you considered a job in hospitality, now would be the perfect time to start getting trained.

Good news, we’re getting on that the hospitality hype and working behind the scenes to fulfill this need! Watch this space.

Get your foot in the door before demand is booming and everyone gets the same idea!


Skill Hire really helped me to see that I can accomplish something if I set my mind to it and I completed my course 2 months prior to the completion date. Cheers guys!


Skill Hire are helpful and professional. Nicola was attentive to all my needs. Their timesheets systems were a breeze and always update us with messages. Thanks Skill Hire


I just wanted to thank Skill Hire's EST Trainers. Nathan is the absolute best trainer I’ve ever had privilege to meet by a WIDE margin and I appreciate everything done for all of us. I’m ecstatic about the internship opportunity.


Not only did Skill Hire respond quickly to our urgent need, your team took the time to understand our organization and our needs. The people sent to help out were outstanding and their ability to rapidly adapt to our workplace eased our burden during what was a very challenging few months.


My son has thoroughly enjoyed the Construction Pathways course. He spent the last 18 months being home schooled and not socializing with anyone so to see him eager to get up and leave the house every day still blows my mind. Simon, thank you for your understanding and taking extra care with my son.


I wanted to say a big thank you to Skill Hire and the team, especially Wayne for such an amazing experience for our students. All of our students were thoroughly engaged with the course and learned many valuable skills.
