The Reed Job Index for February is 16 per cent higher than the figure recorded last month, which indicates greater optimism among the country's recruiters.
Martin Warnes, managing director of the firm, said this indicates that more roles are being created, including those in sales recruitment, as employers look towards future growth.
"Employers right across the private sector are showing their confidence by recruiting new staff, at a time when high competition for new jobs is still keeping a cap on salaries," he explained.
The index also revealed that there are now 26 per cent more jobs available in the UK than at the same point last year.
Last week, a report published by Barclay Meade and the Recruiter showed that 47 per cent of companies hired a similar number of people in the fourth quarter of 2010 to what they would have done in an average three-month period before the recession.
