Unemployment levels dropped by 0.2 per cent in the first quarter of 2012.
Figures from the Office for National Statistics show an additional 105,000 people were able to find work in the three-month period to the end of March when compared to the previous quarter.
However, Nigel Meager, Director of the Institute for Employment Studies, noted there are still plenty of reasons to be cautious about the long-term prospects of the UK jobs market.
The majority of the extra roles are in the part-time sector, which is indicative of Britons taking whatever work they can get their hands on.
"Until GDP growth resumes to its pre-recession path and businesses are sufficiently confident to start hiring extra employees in significant numbers, it is too soon to talk of a sustainable jobs recovery," he added.
Mr Meager went on to note there are still a lot of public sector cuts to take effect and this will see the situation get worse, which means people need to still have a pessimistic outlook for the time being.
