Data released by Reed as part of its monthly Job Index shows that job opportunities for UK staff, including sales recruitment hopefuls, are currently at an eight-month high, with a reading of 129 on the index.
Overall, demand for new staff rose by at least 10 points across core business job sectors such as IT (rising 24 points to 173) and marketing (143).
There was also a significant increase in demand for sales professionals, with this sector showing a reading of 143 in October, compared with September.
Martin Warnes, managing director of Reed, said analysts need to be careful not to get "carried away" by one month’s figures.
"Nevertheless, the rise suggests a returning employer optimism, at a level not seen for the last eight months. Job demand across the country has recovered strongly across nearly all areas of the private sector, compared to the previous quarter," he added.
