Getting the right people on your team is a tricky job. You need to make sure that you tick all the legal boxes as well as getting the right person to do the job. Get the right person in to your team and they will fit right in to your team, provide a breath of fresh air and give everyone a boost. Get the wrong person and you will rue the day you ever met them. They will suck time and effort from those around them like a vacuum cleaner.

It’s a tricky balancing act.
