Recruitment and Employment Confederation chief executive Kevin Green made the comments after new figures published by his organisation, in conjunction with KPMG, revealed a drop in the number of people placed into new jobs in June.
Despite this, he acknowledged that the UK labour market has been "remarkably resilient" throughout the downturn and the subsequent slow economic recovery, and said the fall was likely more the result of problems in the Eurozone than anything else.
“There is still demand for workers and vacancies continue to rise. Recruiters tell us that employers are still hiring," he explained.
Mr Green it is important to note that the picture is not uniform across all industries, with many continuing to go from strength to strength.
"If you are a skilled engineer, IT professional or in nursing or secretarial work there is still increasing demand for you from employers," he added.
