A business firm is to create 400 new jobs across the UK, targeting graduates and former military personnel.
Bartercard said that under its expansion plans for this year there will be vacancies in areas including sales and management.
Managing director Tim Ashley Sparks said: "Although qualifications and experience remain valuable within the workplace, for us, excellent soft skills, such as the ability to communicate effectively, forge strong relationships and use your initiative, are even more important. These are qualities that people either have or they don't.
"We're looking particularly for candidates who have recently graduated or are ex-military and ex-forces because we know they boast skills of self-discipline, organisation and motivation which are key for the roles at Bartercard."
The company employs 4,000 workers in the UK, offering thousands of different products and services to companies.
