First impressions truly do count and your CV is the first thing a potential employer will see when you apply for a new job in the travel industry. It is a selling tool to showcase your own unique strengths, skills and experience and show a potential employer the benefit you can add to their organisation. Writing an effective CV is one of the most important things you will do in your working life and it will increase your prospects of securing an interview and getting the travel job you want.

Here are C&M Travel Recruitment’s key tips on writing a top quality CV.

While they are perhaps not as important as they once were, a good covering letter to accompany your CV is still a must and will encourage recruiters to read on. It should be used to demonstrate your understanding of the specific travel role and company and show how your skills and abilities match the vacancy perfectly.

Use this step-by-step guide and sample cover letter to ensure you make the right first impression.

  Job Interview Techniques

It's vital that you do your homework and research the company you are going to see, as this will give you useful background information about the job itself and the culture of the environment you're going into.

To help you prepare properly for your interviews and to give you the very best chance of making a good impression on the day, we've created this indispensable interview guide.


Jennie is a fantastic recruiter. She listens and really gets to know you as a person which truly does help her match you to the right job! It is as much about your needs as what the employer wants in a candidate. She was with me every step of the process and was available to speak to just touch base while outcomes from interviews where pending and was straight on to me when responses came back.

I would most definitely recommend Jennie and wouldn't hesitate to call her if I needed a new job in the future!

I felt I had to send you an email to say how fantastic C&M, especially Kelly, have been in assisting me finding a new role in travel.

Throughout the whole process, Kelly has acted with extreme professionalism and enthusiasm - her care and support were invaluable to me throughout this period. I would no doubt recommend C&M. Kelly is an asset to your company. Thank you for all your help and support.

When I went for my final interview on Thursday, the interview went really well - one of the best I have ever had and that's thanks to the help Hayley had given me prior to my interview.

I'm looking forward to starting my new job but would like to say that Hayley is an asset to your team and I will recommend her to anyone I know that is looking for work.
