· Salaries for new travel jobs rise again – albeit marginally
· Average salaries reach highest level since August 2013
· New candidate registrations also up in March
Salaries reach seven-month high
Average salaries for roles in the travel industry have increased for the third consecutive month to reach £24,591 in March, according to the latest Travel Salary Index from C&M Recruitment Consultancy (http://www.candm.co.uk/)
While the increase was marginal (up just £3 from February), the rise means that salaries now stand at their highest point since last August, although they remain significantly down compared to the incredibly strong figures seen during the equivalent period in 2013.
“Salaries for new travel jobs have consistently risen every month so far this year, which is obviously fantastic news for anyone looking for a change of role in the near future,” said Barbara Kolosinska, sales director at C&M Recruitment Consultancy (http://www.candm.co.uk/
Candidate registrations also up
Echoing the increases seen for average salaries, the number of candidates registering with C&M or Chisholm & Moore has also risen in recent months and has now reached its highest level since last October.
There was also an annual increase in new vacancies with the number rising by 12.95 per cent in the past year.
“As well as the rise in candidate registrations, we have also recently seen a large increase in the number of travel companies taking on new staff – with a particular boost in placements for business travel and customer service roles,” said Ms Kolosinska.
“With both salaries and the number of available opportunities rising in recent months, it is now an extremely appealing time for candidates to re-enter the travel recruitment market.”
All figures are drawn from the salaries of the month’s new vacancies advertised with C&M Recruitment Consultancy and Chisholm & Moore Executive Recruitment.
C&M Recruitment Consultancy was established in 1998 and is the largest and most successful specialist travel recruitment company in the UK.
