Talent assessment

Clients use our talent assessment and ability tests either (a) independently or (b) as part of a recruitment package.

Clients receive

The service is designed to match assessment data to the employer’s values and so provide an estimation of the candidate’s potential performance in the target areas.

And, yes, the fee for assessment service does include all administration: our clients don’t suddenly discover nasty add-ons at invoice stage!
