About Us

With over 6 million visitors to please every year - each and every tourism employee has a role to play in sending customers home happy. The Devon Tourism Skills Network exists to increase the skills of those working within tourism businesses in Devon, and also to promote the industry as a first choice career.

The Devon Tourism Careers Ambassador Scheme has been running since autumn 2005, with employees from a variety of businesses in the tourism industry trained to act as Ambassadors and promote career opportunities. It is all about the industry providing a service to their potential pool of employees, as well as developing a member of staff within the business, improving links with local schools, colleges, Jobcentre Plus offices, and community groups.
