Despite the easing of the rate, March still saw a marked improvement in demand for staff, some of whom might be working in sales recruitment roles, according to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG's Report on Jobs.
Permanent staff vacancies last month increased at the quickest pace since April last year, the report revealed.
The level of permanent salary inflation also rose sharply, hitting the highest rate for eight months.
Kevin Green, chief executive of the REC, said: "The jobs market is still growing but at a slower rate than in February."
He added the report "highlights that the UK has a two-speed labour market with the private sector creating jobs as the public sector reduces employment".
Figures released this week by Reed revealed that year-on-year demand for employees was up 25 per cent in March this year.
