Australian Venue Co is the second largest hospitality group in Australia, with more than 180+ venues across the country. They own & operate leading pubs, bars, and restaurants in Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Perth, The Gold Coast, Brisbane & more!

Now is the time to move down under with the assistance of a top hospitality company, Australian Venue Co. who are on the hunt for hospitality superstars to join its team.

The hospitality company is passionate about training and development and will help turn your hospitality job into a career. They have a range of front & back of house roles available including Venue Manager, Chef, Cook, Bartender and many more! You can be an existing head chef or a student looking for a new start, Australian Venue Co. is interested in all in all levels of experience.

Executive chef Christian Abbott, who moved to Australia from the UK to join the group seven years ago, explained what they are looking for: “We are looking for recruits from the UK who would consider an opportunity to join us in Australia. We will help you with the process including visas and support with your flights on a case-by-case basis.  You’ll be joining friendly and fun workplace culture.

“What I have enjoyed about living and working in Australia is how different the pace of life is. I had to learn to adapt because everything is much slower and more relaxed. There’s much more of a work/life balance. We exercise together and have a walk before work, for example.

“I understand what it’s like to move across the world, but with the Australian Venue Co Welcome Pack, we’re sure you’ll fit in easily.”

Don’t just take Christian’s word, here are what some of the employees at Australian Venue Co have to say:

“The business opportunities and work-life balance here are great – Head Chefs and Venue Managers have the option to work a 4-day week, and the progression opportunities and business-learning aspects of these roles are industry-leading. If someone wanted to manage their own venue one day, they have the opportunity at AVC to pick up those skills on the job. If you’re at a stage where you think you’ve done it all, there’s so much more to learn here.”
Kirra Parsons – Senior Head Chef, Middle Park Hotel

“AVC did a great job of looking after their staff during the lockdown. We made about 30,000 meals for Meals for Mates. That meant AVC staff members who weren’t working were able to put their skills to use with Job keeper,” he says. “AVC was also able to include sponsored workers in that program, which was a nice point of difference from other companies. The level of support we have here with head office and marketing is awesome.

One of the core values at AVC is agility, which is reacting quickly to changes, whether it be a pandemic or otherwise. I’ve learned the importance of understanding a changing demographic, understanding where society is heading, and reacting to those changes,” he says. “I’ve definitely come to appreciate agility as a skill while I’ve been at AVC, and I don’t necessarily think I did in the past.

The best part is, with be opportunities to move into behind-the-scenes roles if you’re proactive and apply yourself. It’s great if you love hospitality and want to stay involved in the industry from a different angle.”
Dylan Hewlett – Venue Manager, The Smith

“I’ve had a great team above me at every venue I’ve worked at. I would always push hard and ask to learn how to do things, and I was always given those learning opportunities as a result. Over the years, people within the company realised all the abilities I’d picked up and helped shift me into more leadership positions. It’s been a lot of hard work, but I’m supported here, and it’s been worth it.
