The figures from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) found that 54 per cent of British firms have expansion plans, while only one per cent believe they will make redundancies over the next 12 months.
REC's director of research Roger Tweedy believes that confidence is steadily strengthening in the UK commercial sector with every passing day.
"With official employment figures continuing to grow and the UK exiting the double dip recession there are fewer dark clouds on the horizon and many employers feel they can confidently plan for the future," he explained.
The report was compiled by questioning 600 companies across the UK about their recruitment intentions over the next year and a half.
