C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment's Activity Index – September 2021

  • Job placements rise for fifth month in a row
  • Vacancies reach second highest point since pandemic
  • Candidate numbers fall back to May levels

Travel placements reach 19-month high

The number of travel job placements rose again in September, according to the latest figures from C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment.

The volume of candidates being placed in new travel roles has reached its highest point in 19 months (since February 2020), with levels now increasing for the last five months in a row. However, volumes remain down compared to pre-pandemic days, with September 2021's total down by 24 per cent compared to the same month in 2019.

It was also a strong month for new travel job vacancies, with September recording the second highest figure since February 2020. New travel jobs have now increased in 10 of the past 11 months. Despite this, September's number of new roles remained 9 per cent below September 2019.

Monthly fall in jobseekers

The month saw a dip in new candidates, with September's total being 15 per cent below the number recorded in August. Last month's figure was the lowest since May and was down by 21 per cent from September 2019.

Speaking about the stats, Barbara Kolosinska, Director at C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment, said: "Momentum is truly back in the travel jobs market. Placements are at a 19-month high, and new vacancies are at their second highest level since the pandemic began.

"But despite the positive statistics regarding jobs, there was a fall in new jobseekers in September. Some candidates may potentially have been cautious about searching for a new job last month, fearing that the end of the furlough scheme could create an abundance of new candidates. However, early data suggests that the scheme's closure had minimal impact on September and October's job patterns, with many furloughed employees likely to have begun their search for a new role in previous months."


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

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