Data published by Monster as part of its employment index showed that there was an average 15 per cent rise in demand for job placements last month compared with the same period in 2010.
In addition, IT-related jobs saw the biggest rise in demand of any sector, with a 34 per cent increase compared with January last year.
Isabelle Ratinaud, spokeswoman for Monster, said it is "encouraging" to see job demand rising despite the recent contraction in the UK economy.
"It's important for people who might be ready to make a career move to not feel disheartened by the current climate or feel trapped in roles that make them unhappy or are holding them back," she added.
Earlier this week, a poll carried out by Hays showed that, in spite of unemployment in many sectors, many industries are still experiencing skills shortages and have roles they cannot fill.
