The number of new travel jobs available fell 45% last month compared to August, sinking to its lowest level since April.

Compared to the same month last year, the number of vacancies was down a whopping 59%, according to C&M Travel Recruitment.

However, the number of people looking for new jobs was up 3% versus August, but it was down 12% year-on-year.

C&M MD Barbara Kolosinksa said salaries are up about 13% so far this year, adding: “It’s vitally important that we promote the perks of working in travel and continue to do all we can to encourage candidates to join our industry.

“Travel recruitment activity remains slower than we would traditionally expect at this time of year, but that also means there are fantastic opportunities for employers to access a wider talent pool by advertising their upcoming vacancies immediately.”
