Lego team building interview challenge
It wasn't that long ago the standard interview question was 'where do you see yourself in five years time?' and the standard answer was 'sitting where you are'.
But two men have clinched jobs as IT developers with an online energy switching business Flipper by demonstrating their skills with Lego building blocks.
James Brown and Ollie Spires,pictured, are now working at the headquarters of energy auto-switching service Flipper, based at 1 Clevedon Road, Nailsea.
They impressed the bosses at an unusual interview aimed at finding out how they worked together and solved problems.
Instead of being subjected to the normal question and answer interview process, all the candidates for these roles were challenged to work in groups of three to create a Lego house in just 20 minutes.
Flipper head of technology Tim Genge devised the challenge.
He said: “The qualifications listed on a CV only tell you so much about a person, which courses they have attended and the technical knowledge they might have.
“We wanted to test their softer skills.
"See how they work with others, if they are leaders or followers, how good are they at problem solving and explaining their ideas to others.
"And, very importantly, if they would fit in with the rest of our team.”
The groups were given details of an imaginary Lego family and their requirements for a home. Flipper management team then watched each group as they discussed and constructed the house to a tight deadline.
Having successfully completed the task, James and Ollie now work as web developers and are part of the team who constantly improve the Flipper platform, which searches out the best gas and electricity deals and manages the switching process for households signed up to the service.
Flipper managing director Mark Gutteridge said: “There are more and more tech firms basing themselves in Bristol and the South West which has created a really dynamic market with lots of roles and lots of people applying for each one.
"By taking an innovative approach to recruitment we make ourselves memorable to the candidates and ensure we attract high calibre people – like James and Ollie.”
Every person who joins Flipper is presented with their own Lego minifigure, which not only looks like them but is also used as part of a fun staff incentive programme.
Each week outstanding employees from across the business are presented the ‘Flipping Fantastic’ award which sees their Lego figure promoted to stand on a special Lego plinth and given a Lego trophy at the company’s headquarters.
Many Nailsea civil servants remember the team building technique with Lego as part of their London induction training back in the 1970s.

Noah's Ark is looking for new staff.
The North Somerset zoo farm is expanding and is looking to recruit more than 30 seasonal and permanent staff to its team.
Job opportunities range from animal keepers, park rangers and welcome assistants through to roles in catering, cleaning and gardening.
The zoo farm near Nailsea needs enthusiastic and committed people with a keen focus on customer service.
Even better, for every member of staff they hire, the zoo will plant a tree as part of its Go Even Greener initiative.
The zoo will be planting a variety of tree species, including oak, hornbeam, beech and silver birch which will be planted in the conservation area at the zoo.
During the past 20 years, Noah’s Ark has planted more than 20,000 trees as part of its conservation work to encourage wildlife and to provide a sustainable source of browse for feeding its animals including African elephants and giraffes.
Noah’s Ark is expanding with a new leader at the helm, Larry Bush.
The son of the owners, Anthony and Christina, Larry brings experience from a 25 year career in international business and most recently as a director of fair trade organization, Traidcraft.
He returned to the west country to become the new managing director in September 2019 and has plans for growing the zoo in the future.
Larry said: “We’re delighted that so many people already love coming to Noah’s Ark as visitors, members, schools and volunteers.
"Our plan is to extend our welcome so that even more people can enjoy getting up close to our amazing animals and experiencing the fresh air, countryside and adventurous play that we offer.
"Part of our plan to be more accessible is to be open seven days a week from April through until the autumn school half-term.”
Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm will be opening seven days a week from Sundays, April 5-November 1, that is an extra 31 days during 2020.
