C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment's 2019 H1 Travel Salary Index

• Travel salaries see strong rise compared to first half of 2018
• Wages rising faster in North than South
• Candidate and vacancy numbers both fall back to 2016 levels

Strong six months for travel salaries

Average salaries for a new job in travel jumped by 4.65 per cent (or £1,230) in the first six months of 2019 after a big rise in Northern wages, according to the 2019 H1 Travel Salary Index from C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment, which looked at all new roles registered at the companies during the first half of the year.

The increase saw average wages reach £27,690, while pay for standard travel jobs (those with salaries up to £40,000) rose by 1.50 per cent to £24,817 compared to the first six months of 2018.

Across the country, the North led the way with a big wage rise of 6.03 per cent (or £1,378) to reach £24,234, while salaries stood at £28,899 in the South of the UK after a smaller pay increase of 2.19 per cent (or £620).

Travel recruitment activity slows

The number of new travel vacancies and jobseekers both dipped in the first six months of the year and fell back to levels similar to those in 2016. There was an 11 per cent fall in new travel jobs compared to 2018 and a 17 per cent fall from 2017, but 2019's total was up by 6 per cent from 2016. The outlook was slightly worse for candidates, with the number falling by 25 per cent from last year and 24 per cent from 2017's record high, but was up by 1 per cent from 2016.

Speaking about the stats, Barbara Kolosinska, Director at C&M Travel Recruitment (http://www.candm.co.uk/) and C&M Executive Recruitment said: "We've seen a big rise in salaries so far this year with the average new travel job now paying nearly 5 per cent more than last year. That's got to be hugely appealing to candidates and will hopefully lead many potential jobseekers to start considering the career possibilities that are out there.
