With the public sector feeling the effects of job losses as a result of the coalition government's spending cuts, Steve Huxham, chairman of the Recruitment Society, said that people will be looking at the private sphere to boost job creation, including roles in sales recruitment.
He explained that as long as the government or the Bank of England does not "put the brakes on recovery", the situation will only continue to improve in the months ahead.
"It will come down to how much flexibility the government introduces through employment legislation, particularly for the smaller businesses, to increase the desirability of them to want to recruit," Mr Huxham noted.
His comments follow the publication of data by the Bank of Scotland as part of its purchasing managers' index, which showed that the Scottish private sector returned to growth in January following a lull in December attributed to poor weather.
