How can travel compete in the war for tech talent?

In the last two years the technology sector in the UK has seen phenomenal investment rising from £11.4 billion in 2020 and £29 billion in 2021.

This has seen 518,000 IT vacancies created and yet the number computer science graduates account for just a third of that, so travel firms in the UK are striving to compete for technology talent that does not exist.

Come to our Travolution Business Breakfast on June 30 to hear from our panel of industry experts on what travel firms can do to fill the digital and data analytics skills gap.

We’ve got a leading recruitment expert, a high-flying travel industry female exec who pivoted into digital, the boss of a travel software developer and an industry partner to discuss this vital issue.

Our panellists are:

  • Laura Davis, director, Gail Kenny Executive Recruitment
  • Sarah Hillman, global head of CRM and data, The Travel Coporation
  • Mal Barritt, chief executive, Traveltek
  • Richard Piper, business development director, Webloyalty


How can travel promote itself to a new generation of talent looking for firms that match their values? How can striving for diversity and inclusion broaden the field of potential candidates?

And what can firms do to make the most of their existing talent to retain them by ensuring they have the latest digital and technology knowhow that will serve them throughout their careers?

For answers to all these questions and more register now to attend our Travolution War For Tech Talent Business Breakfast on June 30 at the Chartered Accountants' Hall, 1 Moorgate Place, London, EC2R 6EA.
