SEASON 5 EPISODE 5

Mastering the Art of Startup Hiring

6th August, 2023

In this podcast, we discuss the importance of hiring the right people for a business.

We call upon the wisdom of Adib Bamieh from Bamboo Orchard who suggests that therea re three core characteristics you should look for when hiring someone: self-motivation, communication, and humility.

He also suggests that it is important to understand what a potential hire does in their previous role and how much impact they have in their team.

The conversation then moves on to the tech boom of the last few years and how many people find themselves in specialist teams with not much work to do.

This leads to a discussion of the importance of understanding what a potential hire does in their previous role and how much impact they have in their team.

The conversation then moves on to the difficulty of gauging self-motivation in an interview. Alan shares his own experience of making decisions based on intuition and reception. The main points of discussion in this podcast are:

  • The importance of hiring the right people for a business
  • The traits that should be looked for in potential hires
  • The importance of understanding what a potential hire does in their previous role and how much impact they have in their team
