C&M Travel Recruitment’s Activity Index – May 2024

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - June 21st, 2024 - New travel jobseekers hit 2024-high

C&M Travel Recruitment’s Activity Index – May 2024

  • New candidates reach highest point since November
  • Placements and vacancies both see monthly dips

Busy May for candidates

May saw more new candidates searching for travel jobs than at any point since last November, according to the latest figures from C&M Travel Recruitment.

Last month's total was the highest in six months with a 17 per cent rise from April and a two per cent increase from May 2023.

Mixed month for new job placements

The number of new travel job placements dipped back by 15 per cent in May, but still recorded the second highest total in the past 10 months. Compared to the same month last year, May's total was down by eight per cent.

There was also a five per cent fall in the number of new travel job vacancies last month, with May's total dipping to its lowest level so far this year. The figure was down by 55 per cent from the same month in 2023.

Speaking about the stats, Barbara Kolosinska, Managing Director at C&M Travel Recruitment, said: "The travel industry has been short of quality candidates for some time now, so it's great to see that new jobseeker numbers have risen to their highest level of the year so far.

"But with new candidates falling in April then rising in May, while new job placements increased in April but dipped last month, once again we're seeing inconsistency in the travel recruitment market with no clear trajectory. As we enter the holiday season and the added distractions of the Euros, we're unlikely to see a big increase in overall activity but this could create opportunities for companies to snap up quality candidates searching for new travel roles over the quieter summer months."


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.
