Average salaries for new hospitality jobs have risen by 9.1% year-on year, according to data from independent job board, CV-Library.
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.
Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library, said: “Although it seems like summer is barely over, hospitality businesses plan months in advance for the busy Christmas period, with temp roles especially high in demand.
“However, it’s still very early in the year for hospitality businesses to be advertising these roles, which is partly responsible for the boost in salaries.
“What’s more, 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.”
