According to the Bank of Scotland Report on Jobs, overall conditions within the country's labour market improved in November, with the organisation's employment barometer registering 50.9 points, up from the 48.4 recorded in October.
Donald MacRae, chief economist at the Bank of Scotland, said that conditions in the Scottish labour market remain challenging, but noted that both temporary and permanent employers, which includes those in sales recruitment, posted six-month highs in November.
"This is a welcome improvement in the labour market, confirming Scotland's slow recovery from recession and almost closing the gap with the rest of the UK," he explained.
It comes after Sara Parker, London regional director of the Confederation of British Industry, said that UK companies will be adopting a cautious approach to recruitment in the coming months but are optimistic about economic revival.
