Each week, Airport Technology’s journalists explore movements in job postings that shed light on hiring trends in our sector. These job signals provide insights into where the leading companies are focusing their recruitment efforts, and why. We reveal the skills that are in high demand in the sector, and the themes driving current hiring patterns.

This new, thematic jobs coverage is powered by our underlying Disruptor data which tracks all major deals, patents, company filings, hiring patterns and social media buzz across our sectors.

Active jobs in transport, travel and tourism have decreased by 5.3% in the past 12 months, stalling after reaching a five-year high of 77,814 hirings in July 2022.

This dip contradicts an overall trend of increasing job hirings in the transport sector, which have risen by 350% since June 2020.  

Various factors are behind this rising trend, above all the “post-Covid rebound,” which saw travel and tourism industry job hirings skyrocket after months of stagnancy.

GlobalData’s Thematic Intelligence also points to the influence of themes including foreign direct investment, emerging economies and big data in transport-related job hirings.
