Travel job vacancies were up 46% last month compared to June, but they were down 6% on the same month last year and 24% down on July 2021.

There was a 14% rise in the number of job seekers being placed in new roles, according to recruitment agency C&M Travel Recruitment, which was the third monthly rise in a row – although this was still down 49% on July 2022.

C&M said there was a four percent dip in the number of new candidates searching for travel jobs last month.

MD Barbara Kolosinska said: “It’s mid-summer with all of the usual holiday distractions, so we don’t expect activity to truly pick up again until September, but last month still saw many travel companies recruiting for a variety of very attractive new roles.

“And it’s a great time to do it – while some companies will wait until the autumn before focusing on recruitment, those who start hiring early will have the pick of the summer candidates.”
