Psychometric Testing

What are Psychometric Tests?
Psychometric tests objectively measure aspects of mental ability or personality. Mental ability and personality tests are used to provide employers with a reliable method of selecting the most suitable job applicants during a recruitment process.

Psychometric tests complement your current selection practices like application forms and interviews by providing you with further information on applicants and how they are likely to perform and behave at work.

How can we help you benefit from Psychometric Tests?
We are qualified and experienced in running a range of psychometric tests, providing reports and feedback to both you and the individual taking the test.  We can also run psychometric tests as part of a team building Away Day or as part of a personal development package to individual employees.
