This will ensure that the country's economy avoids another dip, according to Roger Tweedy, the director of research at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC).
His comments followed the publication of the latest Report on Jobs by the REC and KPMG, which indicated growth in permanent and temporary staff placements over the past month, following a downward trend seen recently.
Mr Tweedy noted that recent job market dynamics have suggested that there are shortages in areas such as IT and engineering, which includes sales recruitment.
He explained: "As well as looking at ways of boosting job creation, we need to ensure that we are building an effective pipeline of suitable skilled workers. However, confidence is slowly increasing among private sector employers, which bodes well for 2011."
Recently, Miles Templeman, director general of the Institute of Directors, said that the growth of many companies may be getting stifled by a lack of skills in the wider workforce.
