The evidence for the growing importance of soft skills in the work place is undeniable. 

But hang on, what really are soft skills?

According to the UK National Careers Service

"Soft skills are general skills that most employers look for when recruiting and are needed for most jobs. They are sometimes called transferable skills or employability skills by employers."

They go on to list the top 5 soft skills employers are looking for.

These are...

  • Communication Skills
  • Leadership Skills
  • Positivity Skills
  • Flexibility Skills
  • Problem Solving Skills
