Ensuring that the right qualities are being measured in the best possible ways”

Assessment & Selection

Our innovative approach to Assessment and Selection uses bespoke business simulations, role plays with the help of actors, presentations, structured interviews and carefully chosen psychometrics to measure competence and potential.

Well designed assessment and selection solutions improve the capability, efficiency and well being of organisations. They do so by building a culture of objectivity and fairness; identifying development needs and enabling employees to be placed in roles where they can truly thrive.

Whether the challenge you face is matching people to jobs as part of restructuring, identifying how people measure on key competencies and capabilities or designing a reliable and cost effective selection process, our leading edge approach can help you.

Our services include:

* We are registered with all major psychometric test publishers but also have access to a range of bespoke psychometric tests. We can offer impartial advice on the right instruments for your particular assessment needs.

** We are accredited by the BPS to provide training in Test Administration and Level A Occupational testing.
