Presence in FITUR TALENT 2020

The talent market in the tourism sector faces two major challenges. The first is the great turnover and the difficulty in not only capturing but retaining the best professionals, and the second is the difficulty in recruiting personnel with the skills or experience demanded by the current market.

Under these premises, Turijobs strives to offer solutions that dynamically and dynamically connect leading companies in the sector with talent, and that connect that talent with the real needs of the sector, promoting training adapted to real demands and thus improving service. and industry activity.

In December 2019, Turijobs launched Turiprácticas, a space created to connect students seeking internships, with companies in the sector and thus enhance the access of talent in the industry. In this space, where you can already visit opportunities in Melia or Selenta, companies that publish their offers on the portal can include their vacancies for free.

The proposal of Turiprácticas was followed in January 2020 by the launch of an initiative that aims to support startups in the search for talent, allowing them to publish their offers on the portal for free.

Both projects aim to connect companies with the best talent and thus support the growth and professionalization of the industry.

The future of recruitment in Tourism

Today technology is posing new challenges when it comes to capturing and retaining talent in companies. Aware of the need for qualified talent as a strategic hub for business development and competitiveness, issues about talent recruitment and retention have become a priority.

The way to find employment and recruit has changed due to new technologies and the Internet. FITUR TALENT is a space to discuss this and other questions about talent and where to work in the professional training of people from organizations of the global tourism industry to respond to these new challenges.

In the latest employment report published by Turijobs, several trends have been identified. One of them is an increase in the search for employment through mobile devices, a trend that does not stop growing year after year. 2019 was the first year in which the search for employment through mobile phones surpassed the desktop (in 2018 the mobile phone had 48%). The trend is clear and is explained, to a large extent, by generational preferences when looking for employment.

Another trend is the increase in labor mobility and the interest of foreign companies for Spanish talent, with an increase in offers abroad from 4.8% in 2018 to 7.95% in 2019. Similarly, it is seen as the candidate every He is once more prepared to embark on an international adventure, with 75% of the total number of registered candidates in 2019 speaking English, followed by 20% with French and 11% with Italian.

Another trend they have identified is the higher qualification of employees, perhaps due to the need for professionals with the skills and knowledge necessary to respond to the new demands of the industry.

To respond to this need, Turijobs has its personnel selection and headhunting division TH Professional Search. This is a selection consultancy for Middle Management professionals and executives in the sector.
