A report from KPMG and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) found that after a period which only saw essential recruiting, firms are set to look to expand their workforces once again.
In the December survey of 168 London companies, 61 per cent revealed they would be hiring as normal over the next six months, compared with only 16 per cent who said this back in July.
Furthermore, the amount of businesses expecting a recruitment freeze is set to fall from 51 per cent to 31 per cent.
Sara Parker, CBI director for London, said: "It's really encouraging news for London that the hiring freeze seen earlier in the year has begun to thaw and more companies are now getting back to recruiting as normal."
She added that many people are optimistic about London due to the success of this summer's Olympic Games.
