Vocational skills 'more important than qualifications'

People on the hunt for a new job have been advised that vocational skills can count for just as much – or perhaps even more – than qualifications.

That is the opinion of Jo Barnard, director at Quest Professional, who said that for employers it is important for people to have the right attitude, first and foremost.

They should have a good appreciation of being able to take responsibility, work independently and, if necessary, contribute to the workplace.

"Everything nowadays is so benchmarked towards specific academic qualifications, when clearly vocational skills are as important - if not more so - in today's job market," the expert added.

It comes after Charlie Ryan, owner of the website of Recruitment Queen, recently said that people on the hunt for a new role, such as a sales recruitment position, should ensure that their timekeeping and communication levels are perfect.

These skills are arguably more important than having the right qualifications, as somebody without certain academic achievements can get a job if they have all the right manners and social interpersonal skills, she noted.
