Barclays Bank’s Life Skills is a specially set up program with the aim of ‘helping young people with the skills they need to go forward into work’. However no matter if you are currently a job seeker, a recruiter or looking for a career change the tips and advice they provide can be of a great service to you. Their guidance helps us to examine the skills required in the work place, how we can achieve them and how we can nurture them so they thrive within our businesses. The clip below shows an inspirational poem from ‘George the Poet’ that empathises with the job seeker and provides some really basic but helpful tips for ensuring you are a stand out candidate, the kind of tips we often forget about. But the overall premise of the poem is that of self belief and what candidates are capable of achieving if they invest the time and skills into their job search.
