Public sector & government psychometric tests

Public sector pre-work assessments

Psychometric tests provide government departments with a fairer and more objective way of measuring candidates skills and abilities such as cognitive ability, abstract, critical, verbal and numerical reasoning and behavioural style.

For a test to be considered ‚Äėpsychometric‚Äô, it must be standardised, reliable and valid. It also has to be consistent in its content, administration and scoring. This ensures the test is accurate and measures what it is supposed to, whilst omitting the influence of subjective biases.

Enhancing recruitment for government and public sector roles

Success in a public sector role often 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.

Our team of business psychologists work with your department or agency to provide a comprehensive analysis of your public sector roles, the tasks they perform and how they interact with the rest of the business.

After getting to know your culture we utilise a range of innovative assessment solutions to help support and enhance your public sector recruitment process.
