Yes, by not requiring CV's the company does not discriminate on an applicants background.
The interview process is CV blind - you are judged on the work you create and that is pretty much it. At no point did I send a CV. They don't care about where you went to school or anything like that, only what you created.
To be honest, I'm not close with the hiring process - so I'm not the best person to ask; however, the Core team of consultants do visit various careers fairs across the country and don't seem to favour applications from one type of background. For example, all of the Data School intakes have been markedly different in make-up - in ethnicity, background, and personality.
The company doesn't look at CVs. They don't care about where you went to school, as long as you are passionate about Data Viz you are considered the same as everyone else.
Your CV is not something they are interested in, rather your ability with the software and your willingness to learn
CV is not really the key to be hired, it's more a mix of passion and will to learn the programmes they sell.
