Online recruitment agency Search Party has released new data that reveals the top ten skills Australian job seekers need in 2016. If its research can be believed, the skills that are in the most demand this year center around core operations and customer engagement, with creativity and leadership taking a back seat.

Search Party based its findings on the most commonly requested skills from employers in Australia and abroad. The infographic below lists the five base skills and five specialist skills that came out on top.
