Bartending jobs provide vibrant and dynamic work environments, and the skills that you learn, develop and hone are universally recognised and can be applied to any bar across the globe. Bartending is more than just a job, it has a number of benefits that make it an appealing option for job seekers.

The following are just a few of the key benefits that a bartending job can provide:

No two shifts in a bar will ever be the same. Each day you will encounter new people, face new challenges and perform a range of tasks.  So, if you're looking for some excitement while you work, a bartending job will definitely keep you on your toes.

2 - Opportunity To Work Overseas

Bartending skills are universal and once you learn how to make a variety of drinks, manage busy periods, as well as general operations of a bar, you can apply your knowledge to any venue around the world. Bartending can provide you with the opportunity to explore and experience new cultures, whilst simultaneously funding your trip.

3 - Shift Flexibility

Due to the nocturnal nature of bartending jobs, it can easily be integrated into an individual's existing schedule. The non-traditional hours that a bartending job provides is particularly beneficial for people who need to juggle multiple commitments, such as students.

It is important to note that in order to work as a bartender in Australia, you must possess a Responsible Service of Alcohol certificate, also known as a RSA. This certificate is mandatory and provides evidence that you have undergone the necessary training to prevent underage drinking, drunk driving and instances of intoxication. Each state in Australia may have different RSA requirements, so if you want to work in multiple states and/or territories you may be required to possess multiple RSA certificates. Do your research and make sure you are completing the right course for the state/territory you wish to work in.
