Demand for workers started to pick up in the first week of August, according to recruiters, offering glimmers of hope for the UK economy.
There were almost 126,000 new job adverts, the highest weekly number since the Covid crisis began, said the Recruitment & Employment Confederation.
Jobs in strong demand included builders and debt collectors, REC said.
Data from the Office for National Statistics also suggested more adverts were being posted.
