The monthly report tracks the number of new job opportunities and the salaries on offer compared to the previous month and against a baseline of 100 set in December 2009.
It shows that new jobs in January were nine per cent more prevalent, higher than the same time last year, while overall employer demand for new staff increased by two index points last month compared with 121 in December 2011.
The report showed that core employment areas including sales jobs, marketing and PR roles all experienced rising demand, which has instilled confidence in the country's jobs market, noted Martin Warnes, managing director of Reed.
"Year-on-year growth in new jobs of nine per cent for January is encouraging and
underlines the determination of UK businesses to ride out the economic storm," he added.
A recent survey carried out as part of Robert Half's Professional Hiring Index showed that, despite the uncertain economic outlook, 72 per cent of UK executives are more confident about their company's growth prospects for 2012 than they were at this point in 2011.
