Much has been written about the rise of automation and the future of work. The threat of Robots taking over our jobs is a now common theme and part of everyday working life. However, according to one organisation personality often comes out top over skillset. With this in mind what is the future for the traditional CV setting out experience and tenure? Current thinking is that is should be more about looking at an individual's characteristics rather than skills and experience as employees can be trained on the latest in technology. So what are the top ten skills needed for the future of work? 

1. Impactful communicator

2. Active listener

3. Team player and collaborative

4. Emotionally connected

5. Result orientated

6. Lifelong learner

7. Human centric

8. Influencer and negotiator

9. Value driven and ethical

10. Purpose driven.
