Public Sector Assessments

Robust psychometric assessments for better public sector recruiting


Assessments for Public Sector Recruiting 

Public Sector psychometric assessments are generally used when a government department or public sector business needs to hire a number of staff or provide internal training and development for current employees. 

Success in a public sector role usually requires a combination of strong personality traits from problem solving and flexible thinking to leadership and interpersonal skills. 

As public sector officials tend to be more heavily scrutinised by their customers (i.e. the public) making the wrong appointment to a public sector role can cause significant disruption to public bodies and their reputations.
