Regional Work South Australia Project (RWSAP)

Purpose of the RWSAP is to address regional workforce resulting from COVID-19. With COVID-19 having an impact on primary industries securing workers and tourism and hospitality filling roles in our regions, we've created Real Work, Real Experience as an initiative to bring workers and employers together to support our regions. Regional Work South Australia Project is being delivered through Regional Development Australia Boards to support workers moving to regions across the state.

An initiative of the State Government’s $4.45 million support package to help boost and fill seasonal and regional workforce vacancies across South Australia, the website is a central hub for important information and links https://www.regionalwork.sa.gov.au/

If you are looking for work, then South Australia’s regions have opportunities across the agriculture, tourism and hospitality sectors. Seasonal and regional work offers the chance to experience South Australia’s beautiful regions, form connections with other likeminded travellers and workers and gain valuable work experience. There are seasonal work opportunities as well as full-time agricultural, tourism, and hospitality jobs available in the region.

There are great lifestyle and financial benefits working in agriculture, tourism and hospitality across regional South Australia - saving money, meeting new people, gaining unforgettable experiences and having an incredible adventure. You can find work at unique accommodation, world-class food and wine experiences, cafes, and country pubs, as well as diverse tourism operators, often located in the most stunning and iconic locations.

Roll up your sleeves and discover a rewarding work opportunity in South Australia’s regions. Our agriculture, tourism and hospitality industries need willing and able workers to help fill the gap left by the impact of COVID-19 and closed borders. You can meet new people, learn new skills, and immerse yourself in our incredible regional tourism experiences.
