C&M Travel Recruitment’s Activity Index – December 2022

  • New travel job vacancies fall to 22-month low
  • Slowest month of 2022 for job placements
  • Candidate numbers rise to highest December since 2018…
  • …but also drop to annual-low

Winter holidays hit travel job market

Festive distractions have caused the number of new travel job vacancies to fall to its lowest level for 22 months, according to the latest figures from C&M Travel Recruitment.

While traditionally the quietest month of the year for travel recruitment, December 2022's total still dropped by 39 per cent from December 2021 to hit the lowest figure since February 2021. The number was also down by 58 per cent from the pre-pandemic month of December 2019.

Candidates and job placements also fall in December

Despite also falling to its lowest level this year, it was a somewhat more impressive month in terms of new candidates, which posted the highest December total since 2018. December 2022's figure was up by six per cent from the same month in 2021, up by seven per cent from 2019 and down by just two per cent from December 2018.

Similarly, the number of candidates being placed in new travel jobs also fell to an annual low in December, with volumes falling by 40 per cent from November, but was still up from December 2021 by a considerable 95 per cent. Compared to previous Decembers, 2022’s figure was down by 10 per cent from 2019 and down by 30 per cent from December 2018.

Speaking about the stats, Barbara Kolosinska, Managing Director at C&M Travel Recruitment, said: "As expected, December was the slowest month of the year for travel recruitment. The holiday distractions and the fact that many people simply take a well-earned break from work for a considerable amount of time at the end of the year always results in a big dip in activity.

"However, this shouldn't diminish the fact that 2022 has marked a huge recovery for travel recruitment from both 2021 and the depths of 2020. And, thankfully, January is already looking like a much stronger month, with many excellent new roles being made available across the industry."


All figures are drawn from the month’s new vacancies advertised with C&M Travel Recruitment.

C&M Travel Recruitment was established in 1998 and is the largest and most successful specialist travel recruitment company in the UK.
