Thomas Cook fallout prompts rise in new job candidates







The fallout from Thomas Cook's collapse prompted more new candidates registering in October than at any point in 2019, according to the latest recruitment figures from C&M.

The month saw a 22% jump compared to September.

Meanwhile, the average salary for a new job in travel jumped by nearly 4% in October, according to the latest Travel Salary Index from C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment.

The figure of £29,280 was just £6 below the record amount reached in June.

Barbara Kolosinska, Director at C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment, said: "October was a very positive month all round for travel recruitment, with candidates, vacancies and salaries all rising.

"Wages have now increased year-on-year for the past 17 months in a row, but this is because of the lack of candidates looking to change roles. There are now signs that this appears to be slowly changing and that candidates are beginning to explore job opportunities again, but what we need to see is consistency.

"Concerns around the general election and Brexit are continuing to hamper the travel recruitment market, but with salaries at near-record levels, there are many fantastic career openings available for the right applicants."
