The hospitality sector saw a huge increase in job postings in November, with a rise of 26.8% making it one of the best performing sectors for growth in the UK.

This is according to new data from job site CV Library, which compares figures from 2015 with this year.

Hospitality was ranked number three out of ten in the sectors for growth, losing out on the top spot to manufacturing (up 37.7%) and automotive (up 37.3%).

Catering also made the list, with job postings up 17.9% and coming in at number seven, while leisure and tourism was also up 16.6% placing it at number nine.

Application rates in the hospitality sector also saw an increase last month, rising by 19.4% year-on-year, making the sector the third highest industry for applications across the UK.

There was also a 6.6% increase in advertised salaries last month, as hospitality organisations continue to invest in their current and future workforce.

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, comments: “It’s great to see that organisations in the hospitality sector are remaining confident as the year draws to a close, and that candidate appetite is still strong. This is a notoriously busy time of year for workers in the sector, and businesses in hospitality have plenty of roles to fill over the festive period. It’s also likely that companies are getting their job adverts out there ahead of the January rush in the New Year.”
