Almost seven in ten of online small businesses looking to expand this year say it isn’t particularly important to them that candidates have a university degree. 

Instead, they place more importance on skills such as a strong grasp of social media, computer coding, and marketing.

Questioned in the eBay Employee Skills Index survey, 69 per cent of SMEs looking to hire say they aren’t interested in a university degree.

Half of prospective employers are on the lookout for digital skills and four in 10 of SME employers said age was ‘not at all important to them’ according to survey results carried in Mail Online last week.
