Psychometric Testing Suppliers

We are currently recruiting for a senior position - Group Sales Director.  Our CEO would like the candidates to undertake some psychometric testing (relevant to their role and position) as part of the recruitment process.  Does anyone have a supplier they would recommend, please?  Many thanks, Elspeth

  • Hi Elspeth

    We use Skillsarena's personality profiling tool - https://skillsarena.com/personality-profiling-recruitment/

    They also offer lots of different tests should you wish to test other areas.

  • Hi Elspeth

    I have used a variety of psychometric tools, I agree with Tamasin in terms of understanding what it is you are trying to achieve.  Ihave used OPQ32 to probe around preferred styles of working and tailor behavioural interview questions around this.

    I always use as additional information to the selection process, never as part of makign the actual selectiond decision.

    Here is some more info here:

  • DISC reports would be my recommendation (personal experience). 

    Just be careful as Tamasin stated since it should be used as a small-ish part of the overall recruitment process and not as a basis for selection.

  • Hi Elspeth

    The question I would have (and might encourage some more responses) is what specifically you want to use psychometrics for? It can be useful additional data for a recruitment process, but are you looking for it in relation to a DISC profile, analytical skills, personality traits, emotional intelligence traits etc.. There is so much out there!

    Best wishes

  • Hi Elspeth,

    We use Predictive Index extensively at River Island. As part of the recruitment process but also as part of team building and team dynamics.
