Rise in job placements

The number of candidates being placed in new travel jobs jumped by 34 per cent last month, according to the latest figures from C&M Travel Recruitment.

April's total was the highest for nine months (since July 2023) and was also up by 15 per cent from April 2023. This was the first year-on-year increase for travel placements since January 2023.

Mixed month for candidates and vacancies

There was a small fall in new candidates during the month, with the number of new jobseekers dipping by six per cent from March. However, the total was up by nine per cent from the level seen in April 2023, up by 20 per cent from April 2022 and up by 18 per cent from April 2019.

The month also saw a dip in new travel job vacancies with a 19 per cent decrease from March. Despite this, April 2024's total was up by nine per cent from the same month last year.

Speaking about the stats, Barbara Kolosinska, Managing Director at C&M Travel Recruitment (, said: "Any month when job placements rise by a third has to be considered a very positive few weeks. Placements are still down compared to the pre-pandemic, but they rose from last April which is a fantastically bright sign as we head into the early summer.

"It's also still a mixed picture for both new candidates and vacancies which rise one month and then dip the next. New travel roles are being made available each and every day, but what we really need is consistency over the next few months."


All figures are drawn from the month's new vacancies advertised with C&M Travel Recruitment.
