Opening of Greek National Tourism Office in Melbourne enters final stage


By Ilias Karagiannis.

The Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) announced on Tuesday, May 21, that it is currently hiring to fill the position of Head of the GNTO office in Australia, based in Melbourne.

The office aims to promote Greek tourism in Australia, New Zealand, and other island nations of Oceania. The GNTO service will be housed in the multi-storey building of the Greek Community of Melbourne.

This announcement comes approximately 14 months after the passing of the bill that provided for the reopening of the service, which had remained inactive in Australia for many years.

The job announcement is addressed only to permanent employees of the GNTO or the Ministry of Tourism. The term for the new Head is set to last one year.

The reopening of the GNTO has been covered by The Greek Herald with numerous publications.

The initial ambition of the Ministry of Tourism’s leadership was to reopen the GNTO office by March 2023, as confirmed in an interview with The Greek Herald by the then-Minister of Tourism, Vassilis Kikilias.

Ultimately, it was only in March 2023 that the bill for the reopening of the GNTO in Australia was passed by the Greek parliament. And now, on 21 May 2024, the announcement for the crucial position of the head of the service has been made public.

The deadline for submitting applications is just 10 calendar days from the posting of the announcement.
