Can you give us three examples of where you have done this work in our sector?
I saw where they were going with the question but in a way and quite respectfully it was a nonsensical one.
To make the point I started to talk about shoelaces!
“Are you able to tie your shoelaces in Pakistan?” I asked.
If you’ve never been to Pakistan then you probably can’t answer this question for certain but the truth is that if you can tie your shoelaces where you are right now then there is a 99% chance that you will be able to do it there.
Once you have developed a skill, you have the skill!
When we look for “evidence” that someone has the ability to do a particular task (as in tender situations where it is often a requirement) we need to be sure that we do not use criteria that may quite possibly eliminate the very best people to do the job!
