The recovery in the employment market is being driven by large IT organisations and engineering firms for the most part, an industry figure has said.
A spokeswoman for Jobsite noted that these two sectors in particular are looking strong, with the website seeing a noticeable increase in the number of positions in these areas.
While big companies are boosting staff numbers, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are yet to follow suit, but the representative is optimistic this will soon change.
"This increase is being led by large corporates, with smaller businesses still being slightly more cautious with recruitment, but will hopefully follow the lead of these larger organisations in the near future," the spokeswoman added.
According to the REC/KPMG Report on Jobs, February data signalled strong and accelerated rises in both permanent staff placements and temporary staff billings.
The former increased at the sharpest rate in ten months, while the latter enjoyed its greatest rise since May 2007.
