🎉🤡 The Ekka | 2017 🤡 🎉

I can smell that delicious scent of dagwood dogs and hear the sounds of roller-coasters already. Oh my god – that must mean it’s EKKA time!!! 🎈 🙌

For those of you who don’t know about the Ekka, it is a carnival that is held annually in Brisbane which celebrates Queensland’s farming culture and lifestyle. It runs across 10 days and starts THIS FRIDAY!

The easiest way to get there is by train, with special Ekka only trains departing Central & Fortitude Valley train stations every 20 minutes! 🙂

You can buy your tickets online here or at the door.

What’s an RSA, and do I need one??
cocktails

You might have seen the acronym RSA popping up all over the place, particularly when it comes to hospitality jobs. RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) is required by law to work with and around alcohol all throughout Australia. Even if you are not working in a bar, you are still often required to have one, as most venues are licensed.

Some companies will let you apply for the job without an RSA, but you should get it as soon as possible. Some companies may even help pay for the course!🙂 That’d be lucky! Just ask your new employer about your options – they are there to help!

There are a few websites where you can take the RSA course; a popular one being The Hospitality Institute of Australasia. They offer courses from as little as $18. Click herefor more information. (Please note: Make sure to register for a QUEENSLAND [QLD] RSA, as this is the correct qualification for our state).
