According to Poolia, companies are displaying increasing confidence in the employment market by taking on more staff, which includes sales recruitment candidates, on a full-time basis.
A study carried out by the organisation indicates that in January 2011 permanent placements were up by almost 99 per cent on the same month last year, while short-term opportunities fell by nearly ten per cent.
Shaun Greenfield, Poolia's managing director, said a reason for the rise may be the government's incoming cap on migrant visas, which is due to be introduced in April.
Meanwhile, the new Reed Job Index for February is 16 per cent higher than the figure recorded last month, which shows that a countrywide improvement is being seen in the UK jobs market as more employment positions become available.
