(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - November 17th, 2021 - Travel Job Vacancies Top Pre-Covid Levels In October

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

  • Travel vacancies up by 49% in October
  • Placements remain at highest point since February 2020
  • Candidate numbers rise from September, but remain down from pre-Covid

Strong month for travel roles

The number of new travel job vacancies rose by 49 per cent in October, according to the latest figures from C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment.

This marks the second highest number since January 2020, and is the highest monthly figure for October since 2014.

Last month's total was up by 16 per cent from the same month in 2019, up by two per cent from both 2018 and 2017, and up by seven per cent from both 2016 and 2015.

The number of new candidates searching for travel jobs last month increased by 13 per cent from September and more than doubled the figure from last October. However, volumes remained down by 27 per cent compared to October 2019.

Placements remain at pandemic-high

The total number of candidates being placed in new travel jobs remained at its highest level since February 2020, with October's figure matching that seen in September. Compared to pre-Covid days, last month's total number of placements was 21 per cent lower than in October 2019.

Speaking about the stats, Barbara Kolosinska, Director at C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment, said: "Last month had the second highest number of new travel job vacancies that we've seen in nearly two years, so there really is no shortage of great roles out there. However, these impressive figures aren't quite being replicated by the number of new candidates, which remain down by about a quarter compared to pre-pandemic levels.

"It's clear that lots of great talent has left travel over the past 18 months, so the challenge now is to attract new workers to our industry and remind former employees about what's so great about working in travel and tourism.

"Another thing to keep an eye on is the TMC market. It's slowly been returning and we're now seeing some of these companies recruiting again, but I envisage this market really taking off within the next few weeks."


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.
