Sector skills

We have asked some of our local employers to explain a bit about what it takes to work in their sector. We would like to thank our ‘sector champions’ for providing more insight into the skills and knowledge requirements expected from employees in their company’s line of work.

Think about your own skills and how transferrable they may be to take with you into a different sector.
