Data issued by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG shows that there was a "strong and accelerated" rise in permanent staff placements, driven by demand from employees.
In addition, the rate of inflation for permanent staff salaries increased at its strongest pace for nine months.
Kevin Green, chief executive of the REC, said the Report on Jobs illustrates that there is clear growth in the private sector, as opposed to slowing public sector employment.
He added: "The number of permanent hires made in IT, construction and engineering suggest that employer confidence on the whole is improving."
Earlier this week, John Cridland, director general of the Confederation of British Industry, predicted that the UK's economic recovery is set to continue this year, with the country's gross domestic product rising steadily.
