Initiative, passion and self-motivation are the qualities leading UK employers most value in employees aged 25 or under, according to new research by Uni’s not for me (UNFM), an information and advice resource for young people considering the alternatives to university.

And, as students across the country are on the count down to sitting their GCSE and A-Levels, every employer surveyed said it wouldn’t matter if a job candidate went to university – as long as they displayed those characteristics.

More than 50 organisations, including EY, Clyde & Co, The Berkley Group, River Island Clothing, Pimlico Plumbers and Pret a Manger took part in the research.

More than half of respondents (56%) said initiative and passion are the qualities they most value, while a sixth (16%) said self-motivationEnergy came next (12%) followed by integrity (8%) while ability to learn quickly, reliability and time-keeping, honesty, dedication, loyalty, charm and goal orientated scored equally at 2.13%.
