What we do
Here at the South Australian Tourism Commission, we do things a little differently.
South Australia is our passion – a place where we win hearts, grow futures and change minds.
We work as a team to share the very best of our Great State across our country, and the world – to deliver outstanding results for the tourism industry.
We are a government agency responsible for leading and growing South Australia’s visitor economy. Achieving our goals is made possible thanks to the passionate and curious team of people who work here. The majority of our team is based in Adelaide – however, we have experts based around the world who help promote South Australia as a leading tourism destination internationally.
Rich in diversity, with a wide range of roles, responsibilities and clients, the South Australian Government employs more than 100,000 South Australians, making it the largest employer in the state. Visit iworkfor.sa.gov.au for more information and to view jobs across the SA public sector.

We thrive on taking risks and enjoy stepping outside our comfort zone.
We embrace ambiguity and fail fast to learn. We’re confident, brave and always back ourselves to deliver what we say we will.

We never settle for simply scratching the surface. We’re hungry for knowledge, fresh ideas and innovations.
We’re innately curious at heart.
We ask the right questions to get the right outcomes and go the extra mile to deliver them.

We have a passion for excellence and exceeding expectations.
We all want South Australia to be the very best it can be and work with dedication, spirit and intensity to achieve our goals.
We care for those around us and actively energise and support one another.

Our position descriptions are carefully considered and the essential and desirable criteria outline what we are looking for from a candidate. Candidates are shortlisted on the basis of how well they fulfil the criteria: you must provide examples to demonstrate your ability to meet these in your application. Pay close attention to what is requested from applications in the job advertisement - some will require more detail than others.
We provide detailed position descriptions to give candidates a clear indication of the role, however a contact name is also listed if you require additional information prior to applying.
We ask that applications are received either as .doc, .dox or .pdf files. We don’t have any requirements regarding the layout of your application; you should choose a layout which best showcases your suitability for the role and most importantly addresses the criteria listed in the position description.
Given we usually receive a very high response rate to our vacancies, we do ask that:
- Covering letters are kept to a maximum of two pages
- CVs are kept to a maximum of four pages
It is important to ensure your application is received before the closing date and is sent to the contact/address listed on the job advert.
Applications sent directly to the [email protected] inbox will receive an automatic acknowledgment when received, however due to the large number of applications received only those applicants short listed by the Selection Panel for an interview will be contacted further.
We recognise the importance of developing emerging talent and supporting the next generation of tourism professionals from South Australia. We work with local higher education providers to offer placements to students currently enrolled in courses related to tourism, marketing and events.Due to the high demand for these opportunities, we are unable to provide student placements beyond those coordinated with education providers. There are other ways to gain experience in the tourism industry such as volunteering at the many events we run. Click here to find out more.
