Fifteen per cent increase in vacancies between April and May, according to Reed.co.uk
The biggest increase in job vacancies last month was in charities and the voluntary sector, according to the figures from the recruitment website Reed.co uk.
The figures, drawn from vacancies advertised by the agency in 37 sectors, showed a 15 per cent increase in new charity and voluntary sector jobs between April and May.
There were 422 full and part-time vacancies advertised in May, compared with 366 in April.
Although the number of charity sector vacancies fell between March and April, it was 36 per cent higher in May than in December 2009.
Between April and May, the second biggest increase in vacancies was in the marketing and public relations sector.
Martin Warnes, managing director of Reed.co.uk, said: "While recruitment across the rest of the economy has been constrained by concerns about the election or financial turmoil in Europe, the third sector has been able to continue to recruit to meet the needs of the recession-hit UK as well as the rest of the world."
