Hospitality

The hospitality industry is of vital importance to Australia’s economy as it supports the significant industry of tourism, one of Australia’s largest export industries. Australia tends to export its own hospitality experts who go further afield in search of adventure and travels, and it only seems logical that we need to seek skilled workers from amongst the overseas skilled cohort to fill these skills gaps. MMRecruitment seeks to help employers navigate the tricky mines of immigration pathways and find the right candidates, whether onshore or offshore, to empower the growth of business in this important area of the Australian economy.
