We try to ignore boundaries – it's better to think massive and scale back, rather than being sensible and expecting innovation and more efficient ways of working to come from predetermined parameters

We look outside our sector for inspiration – we seek out totally unrelated principles that work elsewhere and explore what elements can be applied here

QWhat 3 interview hacks do you have for candidates?
1. Listen to the question, then answer the question, don't answer the question you wish you had been asked.
2. Being a team player is great, but I want to know what you have done, don't keep telling me what 'we' have done, as I may just go out and hire the other members of the team.
3. Practice, for a few days before the interview ask yourselves the questions you think you might be asked, and then answer them. Do this out loud, not in your head, get used to hearing yourself speak and answer the questions, it will help with nerves on the day.
