Data published in the report shows that billings from the employment of agency workers rose for the 28th month in succession in November, though the rate of growth was slightly weaker than in October.
The data also revealed that salaries continued to increase last month, with both permanent salaries and temporary staff hourly rates increasing.
Commenting on the data, Kevin Green, chief executive of the REC, said it was good to see that temporary staff appointments are still growing.
"The government has done as much as it can in the short term to remove restrictions to employment and stimulate demand," he explained.
Meanwhile, Bernard Brown, partner and head of business services at KPMG, said there were many "bright spots", such as rising demand for workers in the engineering, construction and IT sectors, including those in sales jobs.
