Transferable skills in the creative industry
Transferable skills

Have you ever wondered what we mean when we say transferable skills in the creative industry?


Too often, we’ve seen candidates who have misunderstood the meaning of this widely used term. So, what are some of the most common transferable skills you can take from your current job? And obviously, apply them to your creative job. 




You’re currently working in Sales, Business Development, or even an office job and want to find a job in Marketing/Digital marketing. Or perhaps you want to make a change from an overlapping industry, such as from Paid Media to PR but are having no luck. 
While you may think these roles have a lot in common and you have all the necessary skills, that’s not always enough to make the switch! You need to be realistic and distinguish between transferable skills and experience. And, of course, all while adjusting your salary expectations. 
Our partners at Career Academy have recently published a new blog post detailing what are some of the most relevant transferable skills in the creative industry.

You can read the full blog post here. It’s full of advice and useful information that will help you understand:

  • What we mean when we say transferable skills
  • Distinguish where transferable skills end and experience takes charge
  • What are the transferable skills you can bring from your current job to your new one

Moxie and Mettle is a UK-based recruitment company; our clients are based in the UK too. Although many clients offer remote working as an option, there is still a need to regularly visit company offices and clients in the UK. Therefore, applications from overseas are unlikely to be successful, unless applicants already have plans to be in the UK several times a month/year to facilitate meetings with both the teams and clients.
