The new Reed Job index shows that employer demand was 22 per cent higher in March this year than the same month in 2010, with UK job vacancies 25 per cent higher than in December 2009.
In particular, there was significant growth in the manufacturing, engineering, IT and services sectors, said Martin Warnes, managing director of Reed.
"The Reed Job Index remains over 20 per cent higher than last year's level following the steep increase in the first quarter of the year, as reflected in the falling unemployment and rising GDP figures for the same period," he explained.
Mr Warnes added that business growth has "clearly" been sustained at a higher level than in the final quarter of last year.
It comes after data published by Experian, based on the average financial strength of an organisation and the likelihood of insolvency, found that UK firms were in much better financial health at the end of the last financial year than they were at the start of it.
