Why Amberjack

We are experts in assessing for Potential


Our vision is to enable a world in which individuals are hired and progressed solely based on their future potential, rather than past experience or privilege.

In a constantly changing world with no certainty, yesterday cannot always predict tomorrow. With past-experience becoming an increasingly restrictive method of measuring the likelihood of a candidate’s success, how do you ensure that the talent you hire is future-fit?

The answer lies in Potential. In an era marked by development and advancement, measuring a candidate’s Potential enables you to identify individuals who will succeed at whatever tomorrow brings.

Amberjack’s Model for Identifying Potential

Using over 5 years of application data, insights from our clients, and the thoughts of professionals in the changing world of work, we identified 4 key areas which define a candidate with the potential to succeed and grow.

This research has been combined with the expertise of Diversity, Neurodiversity and Inclusivity specialists to create Amberjack’s framework for the Identification of Potential. This framework is the foundation for our work and enables us to turn the concept of Potential into something which is identifiable and measurable.
