According London Business School professor Lynda Gratton, speaking at the launch of phase two of the Future of Work plan, there will be many changes in the type of skills that will be needed by 2020.
She noted that recruiters will no longer search for people with a general set of skills, but instead look for those who have developed skills which can be utilised to help drive growth.
Some of the findings from phase one of the research showed that increasingly transient employees will have these "deep" skills which will become more transferable in future employment.
At the launch of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation's Recruitment Industry Trends Survey 2009/10 recently, experts predicted that recruiters will have to search for opportunities in a challenging financial environment as the economy eases through "a fairly slow, protracted recovery".
