A brand-new collaboration between Accor and digital Gen Z post-school work platform, Year 13, has actually been formed to motivate and encourage young graduates to explore career possibilities within the hospitality and tourism sector.
Getting in touch with around 1.6 million school leavers each year, Year 13 is a digital platform promoted to graduates through school programs, professions expos and social networks created to aid with the shift from secondary education into work. The platform does this through a variety of social media posts, videos and editorial pieces targeted at encouraging school leavers to explore career alternatives suited to their passions.
The move aims to assist Accor in finding suitable prospects for more than 1,200 positions at its residential or commercial properties throughout Australia and matches the current launch of its Same Day Hire program which enables successful task seekers to possibly look for and commence their brand-new position on the same day.

” It enables us to harness Year13s purposeful, prominent and relied on connection with young Australians to highlight the lots of chances for partnership, imagination, and fast-tracked career paths at Accor. We pride ourselves on our multi-generational workforce and we see Gen Z as an extremely impactful generation with an exceptionally crucial voice.”
Accor Pacific Senior Vice President Talent and Culture, Sarah Derry, said the collaboration with Year 13 was focused on helping the company lure excellent young talent who can enrich the tourist industry permanently.
” Our purpose is to enhance the health and happiness of all young Australians, and part of that suggests connecting them with rewarding and significant professions that fit within their wider life objectives,” Stubley stated.
Year 13 Co-Founder, Will Stubley, stated he was excited to partner with Accor to influence Gen Z to go into an industry prospering back to life as the world resumes.
” The opportunity to identify, motivate and train the next generation of hospitality professionals aligns with our purpose to link Gen Z to all the choices available after high school and beyond.”
