Pre­ferred skills for global econ­omy

The Advertiser - Careers - - Job Focus -

FI­NAN­CIAL and bud­getary, IT and green skills top the list of skills in great­est de­mand, ac­cord­ing to the global clients of re­cruit­ment firm Hays.

Re­gional di­rec­tor Lisa Mor­ris says tal­ent short­ages are a global prob­lem and in­clude soft as well as hard skills.

‘‘ For any­one con­sid­er­ing their ca­reer op­tions in our glob­alised econ­omy, these are the skills to fo­cus on,’’ she says.

‘‘ There is a com­mon global per­cep­tion that can­di­dates do not have a suf­fi­cient stan­dard of soft skills.

‘‘ In terms of hard skills, cur­rent eco­nomic cir­cum­stances and long-term de­mo­graphic trends are driv­ing de­mand.’’
