This isn't finding the cure for cancer, or sending a man to the moon. I think out of a country of 65 million people, they'll be able to find people capable of negotiating a few trade deals.
This has been openly discussed for months. We need a World class team of negotiators. Currently, we have the equivalent of Yeovil Town with a sloping pitch.

Government faces worldwide hunt for trade negotiators, experts warn

...A Government that has spent more than four decades outsourcing powers to Brussels will now have to undo the process, choosing to eschew or replace each of the 12,295 EU regulations that directly affect the UK.
The challenge threatens to overwhelm the civil service. Even the least challenging route for Brexit – the so-called “Norway option” – would entail the civil service taking back powers over defence, security, justice, agriculture and fisheries. These would be more than enough to chew on for years and each area could be politically toxic to deal with.
