Data published by Cardiff firm Yolk shows that there was a 65 per cent rise in the number of job postings by Welsh employers in January compared with December 2010 and a 63 per cent increase on January last year.
Duncan Powell, managing director of the company, said that the number of jobseekers registering rose by 82 per cent since January last year, with manufacturing, marketing and IT being particularly popular.
He explained that the jobs market is now stabilising and employer confidence is returning, which is evidenced in the number of new job opportunities being created.
"Welsh employers are hiring once again, particularly across the private sector. And with salaries continuing to remain relatively in check, this is proving to be an opportune time for recruiters to attract the best talent they need for their businesses," Mr Powell noted.
It comes after a report published by Barclay Meade and seen by the Recruiter indicated that the number of companies recruiting at a similar level to before the recession continues to increase.
