We have three new positions to fill and after weeks of looking we seem to have found excellent people to join our team. What’s odd is that the successful candidates came late in the application process. Indeed, the candidate quality, this time around, improved with time. Now I don’t know if that’s what happens elsewhere but it seems true with us this time.

Many early candidates are people without the right skill mix or with knowledge but no application. This latter group are a real problem – people coming out of uni with a bit of paper and great photographic memories but little in the way of knowing what that knowledge actually means.

That’s behind us as we’ve found three excellent new team members.
