According to data obtained from CV-Library, the independent job board, average salaries for hospitality jobs have risen by 9.1% year-on-year.

The findings, which analysed job market data from August 2019, also revealed that newly advertised job vacancies in hospitality rose by 15.2% month-on-month. 

Hospitality businesses plan for their busiest period, Christmas, months in advance meaning temporary seasonal roles are already in high demand.

Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library said that Brexit has had a massive effect on the industry and the shortage of labour on offer.

He said: “The hospitality industry is still fighting a skills shortage thanks to Brexit and pressure to fulfil staffing requirements has seen an overall rise in hiring efforts recently. If you’re looking for a new role in the hospitality industry, or even to secure some seasonal work, now’s the time to make your move.”   

The data also shows that applications to hospitality roles are up by a staggering 46.8% month-on-month, suggesting that job seekers are making the most of booming pay. Biggins continues: “Clearly many Brits are making the most of this pay and jobs boom, so remember that it isn’t a certainty that you’ll land yourself a job during these trying times. Be wary of stiff competition when applying for jobs and put your all into every application to give yourself the best chance of success.”
