"Organisations need to approach people selection with their eyes wide open. The standard contents of a CV - experience, qualifications and achievements - shouldn't be the only factors considered in the selection of an individual."

How it's done

We take a holistic view, considering how the individual will fit in the organisation, their values, intellectual capability, how they will act as a leader, how they respond to pressure, what they want to achieve, their self-awareness, their personality and behaviour traits. We use the most robust assessments to build a complete performance profile.

I found the interview and the feedback session particularly helpful.  The interview was good, because it had a "curious" tone rather than the normal job interview process which can feel quite judgemental.  The feedback was good, as you can take away some learnings from the process. 
Solid feedback tailored to the positions being recruited for. Consultant was able to engage in practical examples of how the candidate may behave on the job and compare and contrast with interview observations.  Most valuable interactions.’
‘The consultant feedback was fantastic! Incredible insight and probing questions.
