Kevin Green, chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), said that it is essential that firms are rewarded for boosting sales recruitment and creating jobs in other sectors.
It comes after the latest REC and KPMG Report on Jobs showed that the number of job positions being created continued to rise in September, but at a slightly slower rate than in previous months.
Mr Green noted that overall demand for staff increased again, with rises in both permanent and temporary vacancies, but more could still be done.
"Immediate priorities for government must focus on encouraging private sector employers with incentives to take on staff and radically improving the support being offered to specific groups of jobseekers, such as those under 25," he explained.
The expert added that tapping into the "existing expertise" of the private sector recruitment industry is a cost effective way in which the government could start to make headway into this area.
