Executive Assessments

Executive Assessments

In-depth individual executive assessments are for senior-level appointments. It’s always important to find the right person for a job and to sift out unsuitable applicants. For high-level recruitment it’s particularly important, since a poor selection can prove to be an extremely expensive mistake.

Executive Profile Fit

The candidate goes through a series of tests and exercises, including an extensive interview. Executive assessment uses high-level aptitude tests and a general personality questionnaire. Plus other more specific personality questionnaires, such as those that measure relationship building or conflict management.

Bespoke role plays also feature in executive assessments depending upon the nature of the role, for example a media-handling role play exercise if that is pertinent to the job.
