Transferable Skills

In the work place even if an employee specialises in a particular field there are transferable skills that are useful as well as essential skills that are required of them. Looking at a real job description for a position at the BBC, I have listed out both.

Basic skills:

  • Time management,
  • Ability to do risk assessments,
  • An effective planner,
  • Organisational skills,
  • Customer service,
  • Flexibility in (situational) change,
  • Being decisive,

  • Able to communicate,
  • Capable of collaborating and working in groups,

  • Attention to detail,
