We have found excellent candidates for three new roles within the business. In one case the successful candidate applied for another role in the company. When we met with him it was clear that he could help us with a new role we wanted to create.
So, thinking and working laterally we have been able to create a completely new role which crosses several areas of the business. This is one reason I like to be closely involved in the candidate selection process.
We don’t follow a corporate structure when interviewing people – it’s more about a conversation and conversations are where opportunities are uncovered.
