Transferable Skills: Sourcing Candidates from In-Demand Industries

26 January 2021

10:00 am – 11:30 am

In a changing job market, businesses hiring as a result of high demand can look to recruit people from outside of their current industry, by understanding which transferable skills are the most relevant. Recent research conducted by Totaljobs has found the most compatible industries when it comes to skills, so employers can recruit staff with these in mind and find people who can hit the ground running.

Shifting from an experience to skills-led hiring approach can add significant benefits to your business and businesses looking outside of their existing industries can reap the rewards of new perspectives, approaches and diversity of thought as well as making the most of transferable skills.

Join this interactive webinar and panel discussion where we will be discussing the benefits of opening your talent pool to those outside your industry, key considerations for success as well as the results of some extensive research into the most transferable industries and skills for each hiring sector.

What’s being discussed

  • The impact of 2020 in recruitment processes and market outlook for 2021
  • Understanding the benefits for business in turning to a skills-led hiring approach
  • Creating a larger, more diverse talent pool
  • Looking internally for potential candidates
