Company Profile

C&M Recruitment

C&M Travel Recruitment is excited to announce the launch of the industry’s first specialist travel technology recruitment division.

Launching on Wednesday 9th August, the department will recruit solely for technology positions based at companies within the travel sector.

The division will be led by Simon Woods who has amassed 11 years of IT recruitment, including the last 8 years specialising in travel technology roles, where he has recruited for companies including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Monarch, Cathay Pacific, Etihad, TUI, Thomas Cook and Amadeus.

Recruiting for all contract, temporary and permanent IT roles in travel, the division is being launched as a result of C&M noticing a marked increase in new technology vacancies and candidates in recent years.

In total, the number of travel tech roles registered with C&M Travel Recruitment has risen by 21 per cent since 2015, while the number of candidates with travel technology experience has increased by 29 per cent during the same period.

Simon Woods, Travel Technology Consultant at C&M Travel Recruitment, said: "I am delighted to join C&M and I'm over the moon to have the opportunity to lead the new travel technology division.

"C&M's strength lies in the travel sector – we know the big players and the main contacts and have a network that is unparalleled compared to any generic IT recruiter.

"When you combine C&M's history over the past two decades in the travel industry, our great industry contacts and my 11 years of IT recruitment experience, we feel we have the perfect platform to go out and offer our candidates and clients a completely new solution – and I can't wait to get started!"

Barbara Kolosinska, Director at C&M Travel Recruitment and C&M Executive Recruitment, added: "We're always looking for new opportunities to diversify and we've wanted to set up a travel technology department for some time because we've felt there is a real gap in the market, but we never previously had the right people to make it work. As soon as we met Simon and discovered his knowledge and expertise of the sector, we realised he would be a great fit for C&M and is the perfect person to launch the department, and we're sure he'll make it a huge success.

"Most travel companies currently have to seek the help of generic IT recruiters to fill their technology roles because these are essentially their only option, so we are extremely excited to launch this division and position ourselves ahead of the field."
