The research from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) found that the index measuring permanent job appointments hit its highest level since April 2011 at 56.0 – its second consecutive month over the 50-mark that signals an increase in recruitment activity.
KPMG collaborated with REC to produce the results and the company's head of business Bernard Brown said: "The negative outlook has been replaced by cautious optimism as employers gradually gain confidence to make decisions about the vacancies they want to fill."
The report found that the strong demand for staff in the private sector was helping to offset the lower demand in the public sector.
Despite continuing economic concerns, the UK labour market has remained resilient over the past year, with employment hitting an all-time high in the three months to August.
