Over 70% of the world’s employers say they  use psychometric testing to level out the playing field for candidates applying for senior positions.

The real benefit of this type of testing is that it gives candidates who are not so adept at interviews the chance to show their true potential in other ways. It’s a proven method to give more accurate judgements of ability and character rather than a subjective opinion based solely on an interview.  

Psychometric testing:-    
Gives an objective comparison between candidates 
Lets you weed out unsuitable applicants earlier
Saves time and money in the recruitment process

You can also use psychometric testing to:  
Improve the performance of existing individuals/teams.  
Help employees become more self aware 
Identify individual development needs 
Encourage better management techniques

If you don’t have the knowledge, experience or qualifications to conduct psychometric testing yourself, GMD Recruitment can do it for you. Accredited by the British Psychological Society, we can administer and interpret a wide range of psychometric and ability tests on your behalf.
