In the Report on Jobs by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG, the organisations reveal that staff placements for both permanent and temporary workers went up again last month, though growth eased slightly.
Additionally, the number of job vacancies rose, while salaries for staff increased and recruitment consultants reported an improvement in the availability of workers to fill vacancies.
Kevin Green, the REC's chief executive, said the figures show that the private sector is continuing to support the country's job market.
However, he added: "The feedback from recruitment professionals confirms ... the ongoing challenge of finding suitable candidates in a number of sectors."
Meanwhile, recent data published by Reed as part of its Job Index indicated that, when compared with May 2010, there are now 18 per cent more job opportunities in the UK, and 21 per cent more than in December 2009.
