Paraglider over NZ landscape



Go with Tourism launched on 5 April 2019 to build New Zealand’s tourism workforce. It featured a game-changing approach to job search and recruitment and an engaging pipeline of activities to attract people to tourism. Recently, the Government invested $5.2million from its International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy to expand the initiative over a three-year period.

Then, COVID-19 hit our shores.

It’s impact on the tourism industry has undoubtedly been disastrous. Many have found themselves in incredibly difficult positions, from employees who are being displaced to businesses who can no longer operate in this environment.

On 26 March 2020, Go with Tourism announced it would launch a new strategy dedicated to supporting New Zealand’s tourism workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Supporting the Tourism Workforce strategy allows Go with Tourism to provide assistance to those in need of support and guidance at this time, for however long the tourism industry needs support.

And, of course, when the time comes that the world is ready to travel again, Go with Tourism will be the first on board to start rebuilding New Zealand’s tourism workforce. Data and insights collected from this pandemic will help us build a better and stronger industry.
