Trans-Tasman bubble: Hotels having staff trouble ahead of opening

From Morning Report, 8:42 am on 7 April 2021

Hotel Council Aotearoa says the lack of qualified staff is a real problem for hotels as they prepare for the opening of the Trans-Tasman bubble.

Redundancies during lockdown have seen many experienced employees move into other sectors. Now the race is on to train and recruit in time for an influx of Australian travellers.

James Doolan is the strategic director for Hotel Council Aotearoa.
