Jobseekers encouraged to 'consider using transferable skills'
Workers who have been made redundant are being urged to consider whether or not the skills they have could be used to start a new career.
The Money Advice Trust believes that those who have previously been employed in the building trade or finance sector may struggle to find jobs in these areas because they are "falling apart".
However, the organisation is urging jobseekers to consider what other industries their skills may apply to.
Beccy Boden Wilks, a spokesperson for the Money Advice Trust, said: "There's been lots of stuff in the media at the moment, because of all the redundancies, about retraining and transferable skills."
A recent survey of managers conducted by the Chartered Management Institute revealed that 28 per cent of respondents are updating their CV in preparation for the possibility of having to find a new job.
