Helping to recruit for central roles

Recently mirus recruited for the role of Practice Development Lead – a crucial role that operates across the entire organisation, delivering training to mirus staff to ensure that people supported get to live their best lives.


It was essential that we got the best person for the job so Neil and David, both experienced interviewers who are supported by mirus in Bridgend, were invited to be part of the interview panel.


Both men have previously interviewed candidates for a variety of different job roles within mirus.


They are also passionate about helping others and ensuring that people get the best support possible, which made them a perfect fit to interview for this role.


The two take their role as interviewers very seriously. They said:

“We got all dolled up in our best clothes with shirts and ties.”


The interview was split into two parts, with David and Neil coming up with their own questions to ask those people coming for interview. Neil has recently had a health scare himself, so the questions he wanted to ask centred on health issues and how people can be supported to manage their own health. David wanted to really find out what made the interviewees tick- what type of person they really are –  so his questions were of a more personal nature.


After interviewing each candidate, Neil and David together discussed what they thought of them and recorded their thoughts on a form. Both men were very impressed with Chris Rees.

“Chris gave us answers that we both liked.”


This was then shared with the other interviewers and a final decision was reached. Chris Rees was offered the role of Practice Development Lead


Neil and David both agree that their ability to interview people so well comes from them being so supportive and respectful of each other. It was a real team effort, and they’re happy that Chris was offered the job.
