Our illegal new diversity policy


I’ve always thought London was a pretty cosmopolitan city.

But then I moved to New York for a few months. And even the names of our people there tell you a lot: Emelie Rodriguez. Mariam Muzaffar. Colby Brin. Anelia Varela.

Compare this to London: Nick Parker. Paul Edwards. (Sorry, chaps.) And yes, Neil Taylor. Heck, the other day we went to a meeting and our team was a Smith, a Jones and a Brown. You could barely get more statistically predictable. Thank God for Laura Swidzinska.

So that’s our illegal new recruitment policy in the UK: more interesting names.
