Dave Fleming, from Badenoch & Clark, made the comments after the latest Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG Report on Jobs showed that permanent and temporary staff placements rose at their fastest rates for six and seven months respectively in January.
He noted that there was steady demand throughout 2010 and this has seemed to spike in January, when people were looking to start the new year by gaining new employment.
"The beginning of the year is usually a busy period in the recruitment calendar as candidates look to re-evaluate their career direction – but an upturn in the market has meant that this January has been particularly active," Mr Fleming added.
Hs also noted that firms which are embracing the upturn and confident about future growth in the UK jobs market will be the ones actively recruiting the best candidates in the months ahead.
