Online recruitment increased during the month of December, it has emerged.
According to the latest Monster Employment Index, online recruitment activity grew strongly last month, following an increase recorded in November.
Five points were added on to the index, which hit a total of 174 points.
Regional director of Monster Worldwide Europe Andrea Bertone commented that competition for jobs is intense, with employers utilising the power of online job sites.
"The UK's low unemployment rate indicates that competition is high for top talent and employers are looking online to source the best candidates," she said.
She added that a tight labour market is contributing to the boost in online recruitment activity.
However, Ms Bertone noted that the Confederation of British Industry is expecting the jobs market to "soften" this year, following the aftermath of the credit crunch and high commodity prices.
ClickAJob chief executive Yngve Traberg recently stated that the credit crunch is intensifying its effect but remarked: "People with genuinely useful commercial skills are safe enough from job cuts and the effects of recession."
