Travel & Tourism

The Travel and Tourism sector continues to grow at a rapid pace, with the amount of travel undertaken by individuals for both leisure and business purposes continuing to rise.

An expansion in the short-break market has led to a growth in regional airports in the UK and across Europe and a rise in the number of new hospitality enterprises including health spas and boutique hotels.
This rapid expansion has led to a huge demand for a more flexibly skilled workforce. Although Covid19 has had a huge impact this year, it is expected that the industry will bounce back in the future with many new and exciting opportunities.
