  • More new travel candidates than any point since March 2018
  • New travel vacancies return to pre-pandemic levels
  • Travel job placements up 57% month-on-month

Busy month for travel candidates

The number of new candidates searching for travel jobs has risen to its highest level in more than three years, according to the latest figures 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 per cent above the figure from June 2021, which was the previous best month since the onset of the pandemic. Impressively, last month’s figure was also up by 90 per cent from the number of new candidates seen in June 2019.

Travel vacancies and placements both up strongly

It was also a huge 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 per cent from July 2019.

Likewise, there was a big jump in the number of people being placed in new travel jobs, with July’s figure rising by 57 per cent from June. This was the highest monthly total since February 2020. Total travel job placements have now increased by 152 per cent in the last quarter (May to July 2021) compared to the previous three months (February to April 2021).

Speaking about the stats, Barbara Kolosinska, Director at C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment, said: "We’ve seen a positive upward trend for a number of months now and, thankfully, this momentum is continuing to build. This is the first time in a year and half that we have seen candidate and vacancy numbers both rise above their pre-pandemic averages and that’s truly wonderful to see after so many tough months.

“Many travel companies have recently begun recruiting again in order to cope with increased levels of demand, and it’s very encouraging to see that increasing numbers of travel candidates now feel confident enough to look at their careers and assess the great opportunities available to them in our industry."


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