Companies in China recruited more staff in the first quarter of this year, with financial firms posting the biggest rise in job vacancies, a job hunting website said in a report Wednesday.

Job vacancies posted on rose 18 percent in the first three months from a year ago in a sign that the domestic economy was recovering, the report said.

The financial sector led with a 48 percent jump in job vacancies, and the report said financial reforms and robust interaction between financial institutions and the Internet will continue to power strong recruitment in this sector this year.

Jobs in real estate and information technology were also hot after banking.

“Economic data in past months revealed a slower growth than last year but industrial activities continued to expand and a mild recovery is on the way,” the report said.

Private businesses hired 24 percent more staff in the first quarter while hiring by state-owned and foreign companies fell 2 percent, the report said.
