Hospitality Jobs Abroad

When working in the hospitality industry abroad you will be exposed to a fast-paced environment that lives and breathes the local culture. Not only will you be surrounded by local regulars, but you will also serve as a guide to other international travelers, allowing you to become an expert on the city in which you work. Since the hotel and restaurant industry receives a high volume of international visitors, fluent English speakers are highly desired by employers. Hospitality jobs abroad are both fast and exciting, and can easily lead to more opportunities to work abroad.

Why Work Abroad in Hospitality

Working in restaurants abroad will expose you to new dishes and cooking methods, while the hotel and hospitality industry will allow you to live and learn about the local culture of making outside visitors feel welcome. Both industries focus heavily on international tourism, which means you will work directly with people from all over the world. Working abroad can be very beneficial for establishing a name for yourself as a chef, for example, or a great way to work in a hotel which you hope to work your way up in. Hospitality jobs abroad truly allow you to become consumed by the culture, as you work as a member of the community rather than a tourist. This provides you with the truest depiction of the culture, allowing you to get the most out of your experience abroad.

Locations

Where there is a society there are restaurants and hotels, so restaurant and hospitality jobs abroad can be found across the globe. Some locations are more ideal than others, however, based on the availability of good jobs, such as those below.

Western Europe receives a high volume of international traffic, meaning hotel and restaurant jobs flourish in the region. Popular destinations like London, Paris, Barcelona, and Rome all are always looking for restaurant and hotel workers to meet the demand to provide services to tourists. Through hospitality jobs in Western Europe you will develop knowledge of world renowned cuisines and most importantly learn best practices when it comes to accommodating a guest in various regards.

Australia is a very popular international tourist destination, and therefore has plenty of hospitality, restaurant, and hotel jobs available. All of the major cities in Australia lie around the coasts, which means wherever you end up working in Australia you are sure to be within reasonable proximity to gorgeous beaches. The level of restaurant presence in major cities, such as Sydney and Melbourne, is extremely prominent to say the least.

Greece is another great destination for international tourists, which means the nation is home to various hospitality jobs abroad. The islands south of mainland Greece draw in the largest number of tourists, and make for picturesque working environments. English is Greece’s unofficial second language, so fluency in English is sure to increase your chances of finding hotel and restaurant work abroad in the major resort towns of Greece. Landing a hospitality job abroad in Greece will be both rewarding and well-respected.

Mexico is home to some of the world’s most famous international vacation spots, bringing in visitors from all over the world each year, which creates a range of hotel and restaurant work in Mexico. Mexicans are very eager to share their culture and customs with visitors, and this enthusiasm for the culture will surely carry over to your desire to make visitors feel at home. Everyone working in the hospitality industry in Mexico, from upper management to busboys and bell hops to dishwashers, take their jobs seriously and always put the customer first.

Hospitality Jobs Abroad

Hotel jobs abroad can be an immense learning experience that will no doubt be beneficial to any future career. Dealing with customers in an international setting proves cultural understanding and adaptability. Hotel jobs abroad can cover a wide number of specialized areas, from front desk receptionists to concierges to accountants and management. Whether you are looking to move forward in a career in the hotel industry or not, working in a hotel abroad will allow you to develop customer service skills that are sure to benefit you and your future career.

Restaurant jobs abroad are challenging yet rewarding. If you are looking to further your profession as anything from a chef to manager, working in a restaurant abroad will be great for your career. Learning different cooking techniques, preparation methods, functional business practices, and management approaches will greatly enhance your repertoire and knowledge of the restaurant business. Countries outside of the U.S. tend to pay restaurant employees more generous wages and salaries, which creates a system in which the wait staff relies less on tips; this system creates more consistent pay for the employees, which leads to better service and a higher regard for the profession of serving. Working as a server at a restaurant therefore becomes a career choice, instead of a summer job.

Other hospitality jobs abroad can encompass a wide variety of areas outside of the restaurant and hotel industries. In places where tourism is a big industry various job openings pop up regularly for positions like tour guides, activity instructors, and translators. Depending on your experience, you may qualify to work as a nature guide, a kayaking or surfing instructor, or an English translator. Whatever job you end up landing, working in hospitality abroad is sure to be engaging and fulfilling.

You can expect to work around thirty to forty hours a week in a hospitality job abroad, which is enough to keep you fairly busy and provide a substantial income in most locations. While salaries and wages vary by position, your employer will make sure that you are earning enough to meet everyday living expenses. Some jobs may even include living accommodations for foreign workers, which is especially common for hotel jobs abroad. On the other hand, restaurant jobs will typically supply at least one meal per shift for workers, but not always. As a rule of thumb for the hospitality industry, if you are an enthusiastic, hard worker your employers will treat you well. Not to mention the experiences and relationships you make while working abroad can very likely lead to future work opportunities.

Benefits & Challenges
  • Learn Foreign Business Models: If you have prior experience in the hotel, restaurant, and hospitality industry and are looking to further advance a career in the field, it can be very beneficial to compare the ways in which various cultures run their business. These new perspective will be useful when trying to implement new business tactics that stand apart from your competition back at home. 
  • Make a Career Out of Your Job Abroad: While you may still be a student or are in a transitional year, working in restaurants, hotels, or the hospitality industry abroad will allow you to quickly learn the potential career ahead of you.
  • Adapt to Cultural Standards: Every culture has its own set of appropriate etiquette and by observing and adjusting to these standards you will greatly sharpen your observational skills and adaptability. Hospitality jobs abroad will allow you to interact with individuals from all walks of life in a diverse, new environment. By learning how to adjust to and accommodate the needs of various personalities, you will certainly be prepared for whatever the future throws your way.
  • Blend in With the Culture: Your time abroad will be spent working alongside locals as well as other international travelers. This gives you the chance to relate to the people and culture around you in a way that you couldn’t achieve as a tourist. You will become immersed and have the opportunity to make a new home for yourself abroad.
