A career in clubs offers a variety of jobs and roles, and one of the great benefits of working in the industry is being able to experience a career with no limits. If you aspire to advancing your career, where you learn skills in many diverse and fulfilling roles, then a club career is perfect for you.

From school trainee to head chef

You can begin understanding what a hospitality career in clubs is like from year 10 with a traineeship program run by ClubsNSW and NSW Education. This program expands on the opportunities students have to find work in clubs, with a view to future employment. You’ll also get work placement in a local club with support for post-school pathways.

From promotions to club management

Meet Danielle, Shift Manager at Mingara — one of Australia’s leading multiplex clubs. Danielle began by applying for a promotions assistant job (her first task was handing out beach balls at Terrigal one summer). From there, her career evolved quickly. As does often happen in the club industry, her managers supported her through scholarships and training. She got to pursue a passion of hers and obtain qualifications as a fitness instructor and worked in that role at the Mingara One Fitness Centre.

It wasn’t long before Danielle’s career evolved again, where today, over a decade later, she is now the Shift Manager of the Club and oversees all of its operations, including the restaurants, fitness and aquatic centre, cafés and bars, event spaces and more.
