Transferable skills as a boost to employment

Skills developed in life and in previous employment can complement and strengthen an application so never sell yourself short. Termed as transferable skills remember to highlight how these skills will help you in your new job. 
Ben Deed tells us about when a position came up at Merseyside BioBank; an IT job that required the provision of support to volunteers in the office and in the field. His interest in computing, a love of the environment and the interpersonal and administrative skills picked up from time working in bars and hotels helped get him in the door. 
He is now the Manager of Merseyside Biobank.
