Non-credit score reasons for new credit card decline?

I have been stoozing for years now, onto my 5th card, however when trying to transfer my latest balance (of less than £2k), I have been declined. I have an excellent credit score of over 900, but now work part time (still have a salary over £30k actual), have a slightly lower salary and have only been in my job for 6 months. Could these be the reasons for me being declined?? It's frustrating that I can't get more detail from them. Tried twice and don't want to affect my score by trying again.

Wondered if anyone has any knowledge over what other factors could affect my chances of getting approved?
