'Advertisements are often too job-specific, focusing too much on qualifications and experience rather than transferable skills such as time management, people skills and problem solving' Learn Direct's 'Work Ready' report of May 2012, explaining £270m per annum is wasted recruitment fees across the UK.
These are precisely the attributes that experienced, professionally vetted ex military offer:Adaptability - the military norm is a wholly new role every 2 - 3 years. They will adjust fast.Accountability - the willingness and training to shoulder responsibility.Teamwork - a wealth of team leadership experience, and highly productive team contribution skills.Problem Solving - a mindset conditioned to 'expect the unexpected' and to get the job done.Relationship Building - the presence, personality and experience to influence and persuade others.Professionalism - ambassadorial standards of appearance, timekeeping, loyalty and organisation.
