What it means Transferable skills are skills that you have gained in all kinds of jobs (as opposed to job-specific skills). Examples include strong communication, problem-solving and customer service. It’s important to emphasise your transferable skills when you’re trying to get a job in a new sector or returning to employment after a long period out of work.
