C&M Recruitment is set to capitalise on buoyancy in the travel recruitment sector by taking on four new staff.

The additions come as company claims to have recruited for its second highest number of roles this decade in 2018.

Former Jet2 employee Sam Rippingham and ex-travel agent Danny Knight joins C&M Travel Recruitment in Manchester.

Vicki Jones joins the firm’s Reigate office from Flight Centre.

Recruitment specialist Ben Lidbury becomes part of the company’s executive recruitment team in London.

C&M director Barbara Kolosinska said: “This is a really exciting time for C&M and we’re extremely pleased to have found four people of the quality of Ben, Vicki, Danny and Sam.

“With their experience of the travel and recruitment industries, I’m sure they will all prove to be a huge success over the next few years.

She added: “There have been a number of changes at C&M over the past 12 months and we are delighted to now be in a fantastic position to capitalise on the buoyancy of the current travel recruitment market and cement our position as the largest specialist travel recruiter in the UK.”
