Last month saw the sharpest rate increase since July 2007 in temporary workforce vacancies, the new Report on Jobs by KPMG and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) revealed.
Compared to the high level seen in February, temporary staff billing increased at a slower pace in March.
During the month, temporary and contract staff pay remained fairly muted, according to the report.
Bernard Brown, partner and head of business services at KPMG, said: "The UK jobs market continued to expand in March albeit at a slower pace.
"The latest figures show that the job market recovery remains volatile."
Last month, the March REC JobsOutlook report revealed that employers are likely to boost both their short and long-term recruitment in 2011.
It found business confidence is growing, which is improving employers' outlook for the year ahead.
