According to the new Bank of Scotland Report on Jobs, there was a further improvement in the Scottish labour market in May, with greater demand for new staff and job placements in both the permanent and temporary sectors increasing strongly.
Donald MacRae, chief economist at the Bank of Scotland, said the rise in the number of staff being taken on, which includes sales recruitment candidates, is encouraging.
"The number of people employed into both permanent and temporary roles increased strongly in May. Vacancies overall improved while the number of people seeking permanent work fell during the month," he added.
It comes after Dr John Philpott, chief economic adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, said the latest UK unemployment figures suggest that the country is continuing to recover from the effects of the economic downturn as more employment positions are created.
