Top 5 Most Employable Skills that Recruiters are Looking For

Standing out from the crowd can seem quite a daunting task when starting your search for the next step in your career. However, sometimes it can be as simple as ticking all the right boxes. The skills that employers favour most evolves with the times and position, but there are some attractive qualities that are constant. We've used our extensive experience in the recruitment industry to pull together the top 5 most employable skills that recruiters are looking for.


  1. Communication

        Being able to communicate clearly with a variety of audiences is the key to success at work. Employers want to see evidence that you can effectively adapt your tone to online, phone or face-to-face interactions. Ensure all of your exchanges with a business are clear, concise and confident, but always remember that the ability to listen is just as important.  


  1. Teamwork

        Demonstrating you can work well in a team and build positive working relationships will show recruiters that you can help achieve the goals of the business. Interviewers will be listening for examples of when you worked in a group to accomplish a task. 


  1. Leadership 

        Managing others may not be part of the role your applying for immediately, but it is important to show these qualities early to prove you can delegate tasks and make decisions when necessary. 


  1. Organisation 

        Prioritising your workload is fundamental for prospective employers. Giving examples of where you've had a positive impact on productivity, or managed your time            well within tight deadlines is a great way to establish your organisational skills.


  1. Motivation 

        Being able to motivate yourself and others indicates to an employer that you are resilient enough to deal with the more challenging times. Enthusiasm and a positive attitude to work are great personality traits to thrive in any business.

Regular feedback and contact made me feel that I was really been looked after, and would definitely recommend them to friends and would use them again for a new job search and for recruiting in my role. Plus the girls were lovely!!!! Emma "

"From day one Juice Personnel have been very professional, informative and truly outstanding when searching and placing me in employment. From the moment I first walked through the office doors to meet with one of their representatives I have been nothing but pleased and extremely satisfied with Juice. They have managed to source a position close to home with outstanding credentials which I am extremely grateful for. I have found that Juice are by far the best agency I have dealt with in West Yorkshire and I would highly recommend them to friends, family or any business associates that may need form of employment. Although I have not been with Juice long, I know that the relationship can only blossom and go from strength to strength."

Rebecca was dealing with all my interview arrangements and was so helpful and professional with every one, she has supported me when I was ridiculously nervous and helped me to land the job I have been waiting for. I could not have done it without her and would highly recommended anyone looking for something new, to register with this amazing recruitment agency!"

Laura Adams - Placed in a permanent role

Anthony Matthews - Placed in a permanent position

"I have work with a lot of recruitment agencies over the years, yet find Juice personal one of the top agencies. When they promise to ring you they do so when they say they will, and when I got lost trying to find the office, they were patient and kindly directed me to their office! Highly recommend Juice. Thank you for finding my new role. "
