You need to look at your life and see where you can give evidence of having those skills, and it doesn't have to be from work. Cadets might show taking pride in yout appearance and good time-keeping, working at a car boot or in a charity shop might show cash handling and customer service, volunteering at an old folks home for DofE might show customer service skills, debate club at school might show presentation and communication skills, a sports club might show teamwork and organisation etc etc.
Don't think about experience as events, break it down into specific skills and think how you can show you have evidence of those skills.
