Commenting on the month’s findings, Barbara Kolosinska, sales director at C&M Recruitment Consultancy (http://www.candm.co.uk/
Candidate registrations remain steady
Although the number of new travel jobs being made available fell slightly last month, November’s figure was still the third best so far this year and remained high above the 2013 average as well as the equivalent frame last year.
The picture was not so positive in terms of the number of new candidates registering for travel jobs however, with November witnessing a sharp dip compared to the previous month.
“Winter is here, and with it comes the expected slowdown in the recruitment market. While December is traditionally a very quiet month, it appears that, even in November, people’s attentions have turned towards the holiday season,” said Ms Kolosinska.
“However, many companies are looking to find new recruits to fill their job vacancies before the Christmas break, while we expect to see a buoyant market when January appears.”
All figures are drawn from the salaries of the month’s new vacancies advertised with C&M Recruitment Consultancy and Chisholm & Moore Executive Recruitment.
