According to the latest Bank of Scotland Report on Jobs, placements have grown at their highest rate for several months throughout September.
Recruiters in Edinburgh reported the strongest rise in permanent placements during the month across Scotland, with consultancies around Dundee posting the fastest rise in temporary billings.
Agencies studied for the latest Bank of Scotland report believe that the improvement in Scotland's jobs market can be linked to greater client demand across the country.
Other significant findings of the research include permanents salaries in Scotland falling marginally in September, which were eased by a strong rise in hourly temporary pay rates.
Donald MacRae, the chief economist at the Bank of Scotland, was keen to add: "The Scottish economy is maintaining employment in the face of the global slowdown.
"A significant fall in unemployment awaits a lift in both consumer and business confidence."
