New travel job vacancies at two-year high

Thursday, Feb 10, 2022 0

More new travel job vacancies were created in January 2022 than at any point in the last two pandemic-hit years, based to the latest data from C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment.

Last month’s total was almost three times higher than December 2021’s figure, and stands more than ten times higher than the number recorded in January 2021.

Compared to pre-pandemic days, January 2022’s total was down by just one per cent from January 2020.

The number of new travel candidates registering for travel jobs in January more than doubled from the previous month and was up by 67% from January 2021.

Last month’s figure was the second highest number since the beginning of the pandemic (below only July 2021), however it remained down by 15% from January 2020.

It was also a positive month for placements, which equalled the figure seen in January 2020.

Last month’s total was the fifth highest since the pandemic began and was up by 116% from December 2021.

Barbara Kolosinska, Managing Director at C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment, said: "While 2021 had an incredibly slow start, this year’s got off to a flyer. Not only was it a busy period for new job vacancies, but last month was the first time since the pandemic began that we’ve seen candidates, jobs and placement numbers all return to pre-Covid levels."

Kolosinska said February also got off to a strong start with a large number of placements made in the first week of the month.
