Peter Reilly, director of HR research and consultancy at the Institute for Employment Studies, said that in light of impending public sector job cuts as a result of the coalition government's Comprehensive Spending Review, many workers will be looking to make the switch to the private sector in the coming months.
However, he noted that those in search of positions, such as people in the sales recruitment sector, will fare better if they have a number of traits rather than only being adept in one field.
Mr Reilly explained: "The people who are most likely to fare best are the people who have got generic skills - people in HR, people in finance, people in project management - where there is a reasonable amount of crossover."
