Candidate Testing & Profiling

CVs and interviews are fundamental parts of the recruitment process, and a good first step for identifying potential candidates for your vacant role.

However, sometimes it’s important to get beyond the on-paper experience and prepared answers. That way you can really understand a candidate, test their practical skills, and evaluate whether they’re the right fit for your culture.  We offer a range of candidate skills testing for support staff recruitment and for executive recruitment we offer personality profiling.  Please take a look at the some of the services we offer below.

 

Skills Testing

In any given role, certain skills are essential. We use ISV online skills testing, which enables us to ensure that your next employee has the right set of technical abilities to thrive in your business.  It also allows your HR team to benchmark, spot training gaps and develop your talent. 

There are a range of skills which can be evaluated, including:

  • Microsoft Office
  • Typing and data entry
  • Numeracy and literacy
  • Accounting
  • Logic and reasoning

As well as helping you to choose between potential candidates, skills testing can also identify areas for training and professional development in an otherwise ideal candidate.

 

DISC Personality Profiling

The cultural fit and behavioural characteristics of potential employees is just as important as the skills they can offer. We use the DISC profile for executive level roles – a leading personal assessment tool which assesses personality traits and their impact on behaviour:

  • Dominance: determination, ambition, motivation to succeed
  • Influence: communication, openness, social confidence
  • Steadiness: a person’s natural pace, reactions to change
  • Compliance: accuracy, organisation, attitudes to authority

As well as understanding a candidate’s personality, using the DISC model allows individuals to recognise their strengths and weaknesses, helping teams to work together and communicate more effectively. Just what you need when you’re building a strong team to propel your business forwards.
