According to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG Report on Jobs, the number of permanent appointments, which includes those in the sales recruitment sector, "accelerated" last month.
In addition, permanent staff availability increased, marking the strongest rise for eight months, while temporary worker availability rose at the highest rate for 11 months.
Kevin Green, chief executive of the REC, said that confidence appears to be gradually returning among private sector employers.
"As the jobs market grows, skills and talent shortages are starting to emerge. Our members have identified specific job categories that are already in short supply," he explained.
Meanwhile, recent data compiled by PricewaterhouseCoopers indicated that around 28 per cent of companies will increase their headcount next year, with 15 per cent planning significant increases.
