Kevin Green, chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), pointed to figures in the latest Report on Jobs which show that the rate of jobs growth in July quickened compared with June.
He said the figures show that the jobs market is continuing to perform well despite economic uncertainty, and noted that there have now been two years of continuous growth, with employers continuing to hire staff.
"The UK's flexible labour market is a key reason why employment is continuing to grow. Employers are using large numbers of temporary workers, which shows that businesses continue to see the value of using a flexible workforce," Mr Green added.
Tom Hadley, the REC's director of policy and professional services, recently said there is a need to remove "lingering barriers to growth" in the UK and help stimulate the economy, which in turn will lead to an increase in country-wide recruitment.
