Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance is proud to announce the launch of the first ever jobs site dedicated to Sri Lanka’s tourism industry. The Love Sri Lanka Jobs Portal which can be accessed via jobs.lovesrilanka.org already hosts a number of jobs from some of Sri Lanka’s leading tourism companies. With a major exodus of staff leaving the industry in Sri Lanka to go abroad, many tourism providers are desperately seeking new staff.
“The Love Sri Lanka Jobs Site created by the Tourism Alliance has been in development for the past year and we’ve ensured it meets industry needs. It’s encouraging to see tourism picking up again, and we thought now would be the perfect time to introduce this new tool to the industry, so those looking for new staff for their tourism businesses have a better chance at recruiting the best talent that’s out there.” said Malik Fernando, Co-chair, Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance.
Designed by industry, for industry
The Love Sri Lanka Jobs portal has been designed by industry, for industry and Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance intends for it to become the go-to jobs site for tourism business owners and job seekers. Designed by industry experts, with the end-user in mind, it is simple and easy to use. Jobs can be posted in all 3 main languages – Sinhala, Tamil & English across all categories and segments in tourism including Front Office, F&B, Tour Guides and Naturalists to more head office focused roles including Marketing & Sales, Operations, Purchasing and Finance and more. Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance Business Members can post their jobs on the site free of charge during the introductory period. Tourism industry operators across the spectrum from major brands to small and micro tourism businesses are encouraged to use the site, to make your employment process easier and to find the right staff for your tourism business.
Curated content to provide career inspiration in tourism
The new jobs site also includes a number of helpful videos and other collateral, under the ‘Skills Centre’, that have been specifically developed to encourage much needed new entrants into the industry. The ‘Career Pathways’ videos for instance, have been created to provide inspiration to those considering a career in tourism. The Skills Centre also provides useful information on tourism related courses and workshops and other skills based information.
Working together to sustainably develop Sri Lanka’s tourism industry
Sri Lanka’s Tourism Industry experienced strong growth before the onset of the pandemic and Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance is confident that we can look forward to similar conditions, if we work together to strengthen Sri Lanka’s tourism industry. Love Sri Lanka Jobs is the latest initiative by Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance, to support the sustainable development of Sri Lanka’s tourism industry.
“Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance was created by a group of industry leaders with the goal of making the industry resilient, sustainable, innovative and collaborative. The last couple of years have been challenging due to the pandemic however there are good signs that tourism is picking up once again in Sri Lanka in 2022. We as an industry body are keen to support sustainable growth within the industry and we believe that Love Sri Lanka Jobs will provide the necessary platform for both employers and job seekers in tourism to meet their needs in an efficient way” said Shiromal Cooray, Co-Chair of Sri Lanka Tourism Alliance.
