Developing your 'soft' skills

Research indicates that these are the sorts of skills that recruiting organisations look for in a senior manager.

MBA Students have exclusive access to individual career management sessions with Ms Pauline Irons who has an extensive coaching experience as the former Head of Global IT Recruitment at GlaxoSmithKline.
