Across the UK as a whole, permanent staff appointments increased steeply, but at a slower rate than in the north.
Chris Hearld, KPMG's Yorkshire senior partner, said: "This last Northern Report On Jobs of 2012 delivers some pre-Christmas cheer regarding employment, as business across the region gradually gain the confidence to make decisions about the vacancies they want to fill.
"Perhaps the Government's long-term strategy for jobs is beginning to bear fruit? But before anyone gets the bunting out, the good news must be seen in the context of a fragile economy that remains susceptible to future shocks."
Mark Hathway, managing director of NL Managed Services and REC regional director in Yorkshire, said: "Recruiters are reporting another monthly increase in the number of people they have placed into permanent and temporary jobs.
"It is beginning to look like an accelerating trend."
