Assessment & Selection

Mis-hiring costs hundreds of thousands of pounds a year.

"The new innovative approach will give applicants a valuable experience and help us attract new talent, helping us in our vision to grow the business."

Doing more with less

It’s critically important to get your recruitment right first time. And when you do, a high performer will give you 2.5 times the return of a poor recruit. But if you don’t know what you’re looking for, how can you ever hope to find it? That’s where we come in.

These days it’s also not just about assessment. Your selection tools have a significant impact on your applicants’ candidate experience and it is therefore critical that they identify future potential in an engaging way that offers a realistic job preview. The expectations of today’s applicants are set by their consumer experience and therefore selection processes need to be responsive, personalised and interactive.

The modern recruiter is also constantly being asked to do more with less so automation and integration are increasingly critical criteria. We constantly scan the consumer market to identify new trends and tools which can be adapted for selection to ensure that you and your candidates have the most engaging and efficient experience possible.


Framework and Process Design

The most fundamental secret to the success of a volume recruitment process is absolute clarity around the assessment framework.

Once you understand what you are looking for, you can then determine the baseline target talent pool and the selection process that will help you identify the perfect few from the potential many.

Unless your workforce accurately reflects the population you wish to sell to or serve, you can’t expect your products and services to evolve in the optimal manner.

Similarly, unless you have diversity of thought within your leadership teams, you can’t expect to innovate and challenge conventional thinking. Speak to us to ensure that your organisation experiences the true value of diversity.

We can help you use your data to remove the redundant elements of your selection process and focus on the tools and criteria which truly predict success.  Eliminating stages/tools/criteria which add no value to the selection outcomes not only saves cost but also improves efficiency and candidate experience.

You will probably be pleasantly surprised at how little our predictive validity studies cost and how much they can potentially save you.

Situational Judgement Tests are easily the most popular technology-enabled assessment tools on the market. They act as a cost effective tool for deselecting large volumes of candidates – whether graduates, school leavers or more experienced hires – with no adverse impact (bias).

Applicants who don’t succeed through your selection process not only cost you time and money but often also leave the process with negative feelings about your organisation.  For businesses with a consumer-directed brand this can result in the loss of millions in revenue.

As a result self-selection tools, which enable candidates to take control and decide not to apply if they’re not a good fit, are one of our most popular solutions.  We think they should be a volume recruitment staple.

Gamification is simply the application of game-theory to other activities.  In the context of attraction, selection and development, in volume recruitment processes, it’s all about dialing up the fun, increasing engagement and loyalty and taking applicants on a journey which helps them build their identity from applicant to employee over the course of the application process.

Gamification is a spectrum and has something to offer both the most disruptive and innovative organisations, and those with a more traditional or conservative approach.

The best way to tell if someone can do a job is to get them to do the job. The more closely an assessment centre replicates the role applied for, the more accurate its assessment outcome is likely to be, and the more likely an applicant is to feel comfortable with the selection decision regardless of whether or not it is favourable towards them.


We are leading the way with ‘Immersive Assessment Centres.” Immersive assessment centres not only reflect a day in the life of employees at the organisation applied for, but also offer a radically new approach to interviews and leverage technology to bring a new level of realism, engagement, excitement and measurement of future potential.

Defamiliarisation assessment centres are designed to test whether or not a candidate’s natural strengths are a fit with the role.

The only true way to assess someone’s natural capabilities (as opposed to their learned behaviours) is to take them out of their comfort zone.

Defamiliarisation exercises or assessment centres therefore cannot be prepared for and do not have an obvious right or wrong approach.  This doesn’t mean they’re scary, in contrast, because candidates rely on their innate strengths, they are exciting and energising.
