As part of a South Australian Tourism Commission campaign launched earlier this year, the South Australian Tourism Commission has been working to highlight the benefits of a working holiday in South Australia.

The Working Holiday Maker campaign enticed young travellers from the United Kingdom and Ireland to live, work and play in SA.

It aims to help recover the valuable backpacker market, which is also a significant employer within the hospitality and tourism sectors.

The Working Holiday Makers attracted through the campaign will start arriving in our state later this month, and SATC are helping connect these eager workers with job opportunities.

As a tourism or hospitality operator, you might be interested in connecting with this new workforce.

You can now add job vacancies to your Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW) listing and the information will appear on a jobs portal on

The types of jobs we’re looking to promote to this workforce include:

  • Front of house and concierge
  • Bartenders and mixologists
  • Food and beverage attendants
  • Kitchenhands
  • Housekeepers and cleaners

Please note, the average length of work for a Working Holiday Maker is 12-20 weeks – while there are exceptions to this, it is by nature a transient workforce. Therefore, vacancies listed should be shorter term roles, rather than longer term positions such as a Venue Manager for example.


To list your vacant roles on, simply add them to your ATDW account – read on for instructions.

The SATC will promote this page to incoming working holiday makers, together with other sites listing SA jobs such as the Backpacker Job Board South Australia.

How to get your job vacancies listed on

  1. Login to your business ATDW account and click on the profile which relates to the available job/s
  2. Click on ‘add a job vacancy’ which is visible in the orange panel on the left (if you are working on a desktop computer)
  3. Complete all relevant fields including: job type, job name, job description, job requirements, application closing date, anticipated start date, and job URL (i.e. the link to an advertisement listed on a careers website such as Seek)
  4. Submit the listing for review. Once approved, this information will appear on the right of your ATDW listing. You can add up to 10 job vacancies to your ATDW listing.
