Dozens of new hospo staff to aid Ballarat worker shortage


Dozens new hospitality staff will hit the ground in Ballarat over the coming months.

It comes following a six-million dollar state funding splash to rapidly train and recruit 500 jobseekers to address a hospitality skills shortage.

Mitchell Harris manager John Harris says every little bit helps.

"It will be helpful to have that extra pool of staff that we can tap into," he said.
