There were more new job vacancies in the travel industry last month than in any other January for six years, according to recruitment agency C&M.

There were almost four times more jobs available than at the end of last year, reaching the highest point since March 2022.

It was also the busiest January for new jobseekers since C&M started its Activity Index in 2012, with last month’s figure up 33% year on year and up 9% on January 2019.

C&M Managing Director Barbara Kolosinska said: “Last year was the busiest period for travel recruitment that any of us can remember, but the one thing that held it back was the lack of quality applicants.

“With new travel candidates reaching their highest level in at least 12 years, 2023 has started exactly as we needed it to.

“The big challenge now is to continue this momentum and keep doing all we can to attract talent into the industry.”
