Wages for travel jobs have risen to their highest point since 2013, according to a leading recruitment company.

Salaries for "standard" travel jobs - those which pay up to £40,000 - increased by 4.2% in November since February 2013, to £22,783.

C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment's Travel Salary Index reviewed all new vacancies at their consultancies.

They found that overall, salaries have increased to £25,855 and reported a rise in the number of senior roles being made available.

But there was no increase in the number of candidates registering for new roles, with the total falling to its lowest level since December 2013, and there was “a lack” of new travel jobs being made available, with November marking the fourth dip in the past five months.

Director at C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment, Barbara Kolosinska, said: “This is the strongest set of monthly figures that we have seen in some time with travel salaries rising across the board – from entry-level positions all the way up to senior and executive roles.

“What’s most impressive is that wages for typical travel jobs have risen again and have now increased in six of the past seven months.

“We’re also delighted to see an increase in both the number of senior roles being made available and the salaries being offered. It’s been a quiet late summer and autumn period for executive travel positions, but the signs indicate that things are now picking up.”
