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.

"We have worked with Juice for the last five years and they know what calibre of driver we need to fit our company and the customers we serve. They provide drivers that understand the importance of the level of fluency that is required for the role they take on while driving for us here at Malcolm’s. I may also add that the staff at Juice are very friendly and always willing to help at any time."

Tim Cullen - Transport Team, W H Malcolm

"Hi ladies Just to let you know that I have accepted an offer of permanent employment this afternoon so I will no longer require your services. Thank you for everything over the past couple of months, I am really grateful for the temp placements and interviews you have sourced for me. "

Fiona Baker - Registered Candidate

""The staff at Juice are so friendly and really committed to finding work that really suits you. Their communication is great and I receive regular emails detailing new vacancies. If you are thinking of registering with an employment agency, don't hesitate to go with Juice - you won't be disappointed.""

Carole Shaw - Temporary worker

"I found Juice Personnel and their staff to be extremely helpful with my job search. I was kept fully updated on any changes to my application and on any other potential vacancies. I have recommended Juice to friends colleagues and would recommend their services again. Great team of people."

Kirsty Hewson - Long term temporary worker

"If it hadn’t been for you guys and your powers of persuasion I’m quite aware that I wouldn’t even have got an interview, never mind an offer. I had been for interview with a number of agencies, both in Wakefield and Leeds, but have to say Juice was the only one which I felt understood exactly what I was looking for, despite my qualifications. It was also the friendliness which I loved – you almost make candidates feel they are part of your team. Viki has been great – keeping my morale going at the beginning when I was waiting for decisions!! "

Carol Taylor- Temporary to permanent worker

"Juice Personnel is a professionally run and maintained agency with the great ability to balance work to its many members of staff, a very difficult task of late. I am often asked why I have been with Juice so long - 10 dedicated years. Having been to other agencies, they quite honestly just don't compare to Juice is my stock answer. I also tell them that after being with Juice for so many years my wages have never been late; this is very important as you know what you are going to get. So why change something that is right? Dedicated Juice Professional. 10 Years and counting. "

Ian Jenkins - Class 1 Driver

"Rebecca has been thoroughly professional and supportive right from her initial call after I submitted my on line application, throughout the various interview stages ,offering help and guidance with my presentation and finally her call to tell me that I had been successful in securing my new position. She boosted my confidence at every stage!! To come in to see me on my first day with a bouquet of flowers to congratulate me was a really unexpected but lovely and thoughtful thing to do Thank you so much! "

Donna Roebuck - Permanent Placement
