They’ll have someone that fits the bill perfectly. TANYA Ok, but you do know that it’s company vacancies in the local newspaper as well. TREVOR Ah yeah, this should be interesting. TREVOR If you must. I probably won’t hire it’l be a complete waste of time, but go ahead. TREVOR Look. Al I’m asking, Tanya, is for TANYA I’m the human resources manager. TANYA So Una, could you tell us something TANYA I think this one is particularly good, UNA I was head of contracts at a legal firm in TANYA Very impressive. Trevor, do you have TANYA No, but she’s qualified to do the job. TREVOR She’s over qualified! Her CV starts TREVOR I’m surprised someone with your TANYA She has lots of valuable experience TREVOR Well you‘ve had some pretty senior positions. Don’t you think someone with your experience should be looking for a job with UNA Have you heard of the Kurawa River in UNA If I didn’t want the job, I wouldn’t have TREVOR We’re a very energetic team. We Rather more exhilarating than…. where is it results. It’s pretty lively in that office. Do you TREVOR You’l also find most of our team are rather keen on five-a-side football.

Ok, just round here and if you take a seat then I’ll show you how to DAVID Lauren, look I don’t have time. We’ve got the new rules and regs. I’ve got a heavier workload… …look I don’t have time to… look DAVID That’s right. If you type your password Rolands for eight years before they closed. She’s got great references, commitment beyond the call of duty, loyalty, an asset to the DAVID Ok, and press ‘enter’ and, as you can see, that takes you through to our homepage. provide what she needs, like the scanner, she’ll be up to speed with everyone else. Otherwise, I don’t see a problem here. LAUREN Partially. How’s the team coping? anyone like her before. And neither have I. So I guess I’m just wondering why we hired DAVID It’s fair to say most of them don’t know somebody who isn’t suitable for the job. LAUREN Right, well we’ve done the audit. starting a new job takes a bit of time to get up We’re stil waiting for the scanner and let’s get DAVID Jenny, I just wanted to say sorry about DAVID Jenny, could you go through these for the coffee incident earlier. I’ve had a word with JENNY To be honest with you I’m going to DAVID Right. I suppose I could get someone JENNY Well, that’s going to be a waste of DAVID And now you’re got your scanner, so, time.

LAUREN So they met all their targets, this DAVID Yeah. It’s strange but they’ve started to work together better as a team.
