According to the latest Bank of Scotland Report on Jobs, one in three agencies have recorded a boost in temporary staff billings throughout August.
In fact, the rate of growth in this area has been the fastest witnessed in four months, as well as being much stronger than the figures recorded across the UK as a whole.
IT and computing were pinpointed as the sectors which have recorded the strongest increase in available temporary job positions, though construction and engineering are enjoying a healthy period too.
On top of this, vacancies for both permanent and temporary jobs in Scotland were also up in August, when compared to the previous month.
Donald MacRae, chief economist at the Bank of Scotland, commented: "The Scottish economy is showing resilience in the face of the global slowdown."
Last week, the Federation of Small Businesses suggested that the majority of jobs created since the UK dropped into recession in 2008 were recorded by the country's small and medium enterprises.
