Jeff Brooks, chair of the REC's technology group, said: "It is encouraging to see this growth in demand. Our members are showing increasing confidence in the sector and many of them are looking to hire more recruiters as a result.

"It is very encouraging to see that companies will still invest in technology to develop their businesses even when there is a tough economic landscape."
