Strategic People puts Game of Thrones characters through their CORE paces

A Manchester-based recruiter has put three Game of Thrones characters – Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen – through their paces to decide just who should land the coveted role of king or queen of the Seven Kingdoms and sit on the Iron Throne.

Strategic People recently put a job posting for the role on its website and then used its competency, objectives, resilience and the evidence (CORE) approach to work out each candidate’s strengths and weakness, putting together three mini videos evaluating each candidate.

The first video, released yesterday (12 July), was for Cersei Lannister, whose competencies include scheming and drinking, with objectives such as revenge, though it was decided she didn’t look like a good team player to be put forward for interview.

Videos for Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryan will follow today (13 July) and tomorrow (14 July) to coincide with season 7 of Game of Thrones, set to hit screens this Monday (17 July).
