Data compiled by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and Bond Pearce as part of the Retail Employment Monitor Q4 2010 shows that there were 3,900 more people in full-time retail jobs in the last year's final quarter than at the same stage a year earlier.
This marks an increase of 0.6 per cent and was described as a "modest" rise by Stephen Robertson, director general of the BRC.
He added: "Almost two-thirds of retailers say they will add to or maintain job numbers over the next three months and new stores are still being opened. With youth unemployment a major concern, retailers' largely positive outlook is good news for young jobseekers."
