When we consider attracting the right talent, we always take technical skills as priority.
But what makes talent a real deal and how can we nurture a person’s growth, if we don’t give them a chance to begin with?
In an era of endlessly listed bullet points of “must haves” and “mandatory skillsets”, we tend to not take into consideration how we should create positions around people, instead of seeking omniscient beings to fill the unnecessary brackets.

In our most recent Tech Leaders’ Intel podcast, our colleague, Mark Jacks, converses with Simon Prior, the Head of Quality Engineering at easyJet, about the importance of Quality Assurance, different perspectives, heterogeneity of talents, and neurodiversity within projects. During our talk, we embark on a journey and deep dive into matters like:
  • Raising awareness around the importance of QA from the very beginning of development
  • Whether a buggy mess of an application could be considered of high quality
  • How job descriptions scare off incredible talents
  • Supporting neurodivergent teams
...and much more!

Throughout our conversations, Simon emphasises how “People before projects” is a phrase to live by and that honouring the comfort zones of your team members can bring out the most efficient individuals out there.
