Recent research from the Ashdown Group Job Index found that the number of human resources (HR) vacancies increased significantly in September.
According to the HR Society, the bounce back in the number of HR positions could be an indicator that recruitment is set for a recovery.
President Andrew Mayo explained that there is often more HR work to be had when employers are contracting and suggested the increase could reflect a return to normality after a "cull" in the HR sector over the last year.
"There is a seasonal effect at play too - post holiday hiring and budget agreements in the private sector for years beginning on January 1st," he said.
Mr Mayo added that it is likely that recruitment in the sector will fall back over this month and next, but that there has been "encouraging signs of recovery" from mid-year.
