Rob Scott, managing director at the recruitment firm, said that the "general vibe" among employers is also "more upbeat".
Commenting on recent data from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and the Office for National Statistics (ONS), which both showed slight improvements in employment, Mr Scott said that 2011 "will be a year of gradual growth, with small increases in job growth and pay remaining static".
"It's going to take a couple of years for the world to recover but let's get the building blocks in place to maximise from the upturn when it returns with a vengeance," he added.
Figures released earlier this week by the ONS highlighted that the employment rate in the UK climbed two percentage points to 70.7 per cent in the three months to February 2011. The number of job vacancies also rose.
