Recruitment surge is ‘fantastically bright sign’


Recruitment surge is ‘fantastically bright sign’

Last month’s total was the highest for nine months – since July 2023 – and was also up by 15% from April 2023.

This was the first year-on-year increase for travel placements since January 2023.

Barbara Kolosinska, C&M Travel Recruitment managing director, 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.”

There was a small fall in new candidates during the month, with the number of new jobseekers dipping by 6% from March.

However, the total was up by 9% from the level seen in April 2023, and up by 18% from April 2019.

The month also saw a fall in new travel job vacancies with a 19% decrease from March. Despite this, April 2024’s total was up by 9% from the same month last year.

Kolosinska added: “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.
