Data published by the organisations reveals that permanent staff placements increased at a steady pace in April, continuing the trend seen since the start of 2012, with the placements supported by a further solid increase in demand for staff.
The report also showed that temporary and contract staff availability continued to rise, albeit at a slightly slower rate than in recent months.
Kevin Green, chief executive of the REC, noted that employer and consumer confidence is increasing and he anticipates more private sector jobs being created in the second half of the year.
"During 2011, employers made do with the staff they had, trying to exploit any additional capacity in their existing workforce," he added.
"Having maximised the growth they could achieve in this way, confidence has grown sufficiently for organisations to make the positive decision to take on more staff."
