Michael Dean, head of marketing at the National Computing Centre, said that relevant qualifications are clearly important when applying for a position but it is important for candidates to let their personality shine through.
He noted that many employers will be on the lookout for people with "soft skills", such as self-motivation and the ability to get on well with colleagues.
"Qualifications are just part of the picture. One candidate may have more qualifications than another, but their personality may not be the right fit for the job," the expert said.
