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 Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment, which surveyed all new vacancies registered with the companies during the month.

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 Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment.

Candidate registrations also up

Echoing the increases seen for average salaries, the number of candidates registering with C&M 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 Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment.

C&M Travel Recruitment was established in 1998 and is the largest and most successful specialist travel recruitment company in the UK.

Having such a reliable recruitment partner with a ‘can-do' attitude means I can leave C&M to get the recruitment brief filled efficiently and effectively.
