Off to a flying start…

As we really get into the swing of 2020 and Christmas seems a lifetime ago, the team wanted to share their perspective of the industry at this time.


“The year has got off to a great start. We have seen an increase in applications by 30% across the board and also an increase of new job roles coming to market. We are working on 20% more roles than we were this time last year, so the market is in a positive, confident position. Many of the travel jobs being created are due to expansion within the business, rather than replacement so this is very encouraging.”


“More recently we have been recruiting for positions across the board in the leisure sector, ranging from entry level up to SVP commanding six figure salaries. We have found the more senior jobs in travel to be focused on sales growth and partnerships; however as a whole we have been working on a real variety of roles. The Inbound travel sector has been on the quieter side in terms of new positions becoming available, however with Brexit coming to a close we’re expecting this to really pick back up in the coming months.”


“Still being relatively new to the business, I have been so impressed by the name Jayne Peirce Travel Recruitment has in the market and the excellent reputation the team here has built up over the years. As a direct outcome of this, in recent months we have welcomed many new clients to the business, with a large number of them partnering us exclusively. New clients, new candidates, and new jobs mean a great start to the year. We are looking forward to 2020 and working with new and existing clients.”


“As marketing activity picks back up after the Christmas break, we’ve seen a spike in natural engagement though unpaid channels. More candidates are coming direct to the consultants or through our website, and the percentage of quality individuals is extremely high compared to what we usually see through various paid mediums. Year on year, January is seeing a huge uplift in quality applications, social media followers and general engagement across the board.

If you’re looking to hire your next superstar candidate or looking to land that perfect travel job get in touch with us today 01732 808313.
