About Hotel Housekeeping

What they do

Only 6% of refugees have a job six months after they arrive in Australia and less than a quarter of refugees have a job two years after they arrive in Australia. In February 2019, there were 244,900 job vacancies in Australia. It doesn’t make sense to us that people seeking work are struggling for years while jobs are left empty.

Hotel Housekeeping provides a housekeeper on demand service, giving hoteliers options to outsource their workforce or employ direct.

How we help them

White Box Enterprises is supporting Hotel Housekeeping with finance, space, business support and partners.
