Michael Gentle, a spokesman for Monster UK & Ireland, said that new figures published in the Monster Employment Index give great cause for optimism, despite showing a reduction in public sector workers numbers.
The report showed that recruitment growth was registered across 15 of the 21 industry sectors measured, with the transport, post and logistics sector topping the list with a 36 per cent boost.
Mr Gentle explained: "This coincides with recent upward trends in industrial new orders, as reported by Eurostat and, likewise, the ONS [Office for National Statistics] Index of Services' recently reported rises in distribution and transport."
Overall, trends in the index continued to remain more favourable than a year ago, he added.
It comes after a survey carried out by the Confederation of British Industry recently showed that the nation's manufacturers have increased their headcount again as they continue recovering from the effects of the economic downturn.
