O’Brien Consulting offers a wide range of options within the assessment arena, from large scale Psychometric Assessments to Individual Assessments for strategic senior positions. Assessment services include:
For large scale de-selection (e.g. graduate recruitment), O’Brien Consulting utilise aptitude tests that measure aptitude across all levels of role. This is particularly useful when seeking to narrow numbers down to more manageable levels in a selection procedure.
In today’s competitive environment, it is imperative that correct selection decisions are made for senior positions. O’Brien Consulting deliver individualised assessment procedures for key roles. Our approach involves working with the client to define the key competencies required for the role. Once this is defined, we apply a rigorous selection procedure for those who are shortlisted for the role. Such procedures include psychometric testing, personality assessment and competency based interview by a Psychologist. Once complete, the client receives a full report written by the Psychologist identifying both strengths and potential areas of concern. The report includes suggested questions that should be probed at final interview.
O’Brien Consulting can design and implement assessment centres for all levels of role from graduate to senior executives. Our approach is to work with the client to identify the competencies required for the graduate roles. We then develop the assessment matrix, utilising the most appropriate assessment techniques. Techniques include group activities, individual role plays, written activities, presentation activities, personality assessment etc. Once completed, the client receives a detailed report on each candidate highlighting strengths, development needs and likely fit for the role in question.
