The UK’s rapidly changing economy demands a workforce that is adaptable and dynamic. Transferable skills are essential tools for a candidate to have as employers search more and more for flexible and intuitive workers. Good transferable skills enable a worker to undertake a varied workload and have the necessary logic and competency to complete such a varied nature of tasks.
Before applying for a new role, take the time to reflect on the skills you possess. A self-assessment can help you to identify which skills you have that will add value to a company, as well as those skills that you may need to brush up on and develop in order to succeed in a new role.
When applying for jobs working in the transport or logistics industry, it is important to tailor your CV to reflect the skills that the employer have stated as necessary and desirable. This article breaks down what to include when applying for such roles and how to put this on paper.
Candidates with strong interpersonal and communication skills are actively sought out by employers. Collaboration and cohesion are highly valued concepts for organisations striving to succeed and create a smooth and productive environment. Each worker plays their own role in contributing to and perpetuating this supportive working environment.
Although when applying for jobs we should remain realistic... don’t let a lack of experience or absence of a qualification put you off from applying for your dream job. Instead, highlight your best, most relevant skills and explain how you could use these to add value to the company. Sell yourself. Make a strong case as the start of the covering letter or CV and back up every point with working examples of how you have demonstrated each desirable skill.
