Melbourne Travel Market is Buoyant and Growing

Author: TMS Talent

Published Date: 2017/12


Adrian Boccia, TMS Talent Senior Recruiter in Melbourne and Ainslie Hunt, Operations Manager enjoyed the annual Christmas TraveLeague function on Wednesdau @crownhotels Melbourne. It was well represented by retail agents, wholesale travel companies, cruise experts, airlines and senior management from the 'who is who' of Melbourne travel businesses. This was the perfect opportunity for Adrian to reconnect with industry partners as the Senior Recruiter for all travel and hospitality talent requirements in Melbourne, South Australia and WA.

Adrian comments "Since TMS Talent re-opened mid-year in Melbourne, it is evident that the travel market is buoyant and growing. Some sectors are busier than others, with Leisure, MICE and corporate sectors leading the way. There has been strong movement across the middle salary tier of the industry and if you are a good Business Development Manager, then the choice is yours. Strong leaders are in demand and we have seen some slow salary increases in senior travel consultant vacancies. 

We have also seen a growth of travel businesses expanding their footprint in the Melbourne market or making Melbourne their home, with cheaper rent and more candidates available. With Melbourne being the most liveable city in the world for 7 years running, it just shows why every candidate would want to work in the travel industry and call Melbourne home."
