Travel jobseekers at highest level for three years

The number of new candidates searching for travel jobs has risen to its highest level in more than three years, says the latest data from C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment.

The total number of job seekers in July 2021 exceeded every month since March 2018 and was 51% above the figure from June 2021, which was the previous best month since the onset of the pandemic.

Last month's figure was also up by 90% from the number of new candidates seen in June 2019, C&M said.

It was also a big month for new travel job vacancies with July's total more than doubling the previous pandemic-high, set in June 2021.

Last month's total number of new roles was the highest since January 2020 and was the fifth highest figure in the last four years.

Compared to pre-pandemic levels, July 2021's figure was up by 40% from July 2019.

Also, there was a big jump in the number of people being placed in new travel jobs, with July up by 57% from June, the C&M data found.

This was the highest monthly total since February 2020.

It says total travel job placements have now increased by 152% in the last quarter (May to July 2021) compared to the previous three months.
