Get Paid to do this

Man pouring a beer

Tourism NT is working with Tourism Top EndTourism Central Australia and Hospitality NT, to deliver a dedicated working holiday maker campaign to attract short-term hospitality and tourism workers back to the Territory.

Building our workforce and gearing up for the Territory’s peak season is a key priority.

The working holiday maker campaign, Get Paid to do this, will target newly arrived backpackers that are already in Australia while NT Backpacking Academy will target potential working holiday makers based in the UK and Germany and entice them to head to Australia’s Northern Territory for the quintessential Aussie backpacking adventure.

WorkerConnect – Jobs in the Northern Territory talent pool

The NT Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade has also implemented a talent pool that allows Territory businesses to load their jobs, and search for workers that have loaded their CV to the system.

Loading your job is a great way to get noticed in preparation for our peak tourism season – and we need to begin this process now.  

How businesses can get involved

  1. List your job vacancy on WorkerConnect - Jobs in the Northern Territory. This is a job talent pool platform where Territory employers can find job seekers by registering your businesses details and job vacancies.
  2. Hospitality NT members can leverage the campaign by submitting job vacancies to their association and registering the vacancy on WorkerConnect - Jobs in the Northern Territory.
  3. Ensure that your business’ ATDW listing is up to date and live.

There is no cost for businesses to list their vacancy with WorkerConnect - Jobs in the Northern Territory.  

Global worker attraction campaign

In addition to this program the Northern Territory Government will also launch a Global worker attraction campaign, ‘Jobs in Australia’s Northern Territory’ which is underway to attract skilled workers to the NT, across all sectors. This broader campaign will target skilled workers to the NT, across all sectors. This campaign will target skilled workers to grow our population. Work is underway to engage with the Territory's peak industry bodies, on the delivery of this program.
