Those who face redundancy from their public sector role will struggle to find a job in the private sector, an industry figure has claimed.
Mark Staniland, managing director of career transition services at Hays, said that the situation will be particularly difficult for those who have never worked for a private enterprise before.
A key reason for this is the fact that many employers in the private sector fail to see what benefits someone who has worked in the public sector can bring to their operations.
"Leaving aside the issue of job availability, private sector employers find it difficult to understand the skills and experience gained in the public sector and are often unable to translate them into meaningful comparisons for their company," Mr Staniland added.
According to research by Barclays Corporate and the Financial Times, more than half of private sector companies in the UK say they are not interested in hiring people who have lost their jobs in the public sector.
