Welcome to Our Homepage

For over 25 years, we have provided psychometric assessment and associated services to organisations across the UK, throughout Europe and into the USA. This site offers straightforward information on:

* What we do * How we operate * How we can help you *  

Fundamentally, we work to support you during the HR projects that are crucial to long-term business success.

We operate in ALL Sectors, at ALL Levels, in ALL Disciplines.

Most of our projects are for clients who are seeking to fill a particular role.  We provide high-quality, cutting-edge psychometric assessments on a bureau-service basis. Once you have identified suitable candidates, we manage the entire assessment process for you. We are independent Business Psychologists, working on your behalf, registered with a wide range of global test publishers. 

All of this means that:

  • You DON’T need to be trained or qualified in psychometric assessment
  • You DON’T need to invest in a limited product or single system
  • You DON’T incur annual licensing costs or ‘lock-in’ fees
  • You DO have access to an almost unparalleled range of world-class assessments
Improved Selection Methods

Here are some examples of recent assignments: 

Finance Manager, International Sales Manager, Director of Programme Management, IT Manager, Work Study Manager, Senior Maintenance Engineer, Energy Project Manager, General Manager… (You get the picture). 

If you have a business-critical role to fill and you want a comprehensive, objective report on your candidates’ qualities, then start here: Bespoke Assessments.

Wide range of Assessment Centre Exercises

Of course, we also get involved in full-blown Assessment / Development centres. We’ll work with you and your team to devise and facilitate an event, providing all the instruments, tools and techniques required to flush out the best applicants. Go here: Assessment Centres

In high-volume recruitment scenarios, for example an annual Graduate selection scheme, we can help there too. See: High Volume Screening

We also offer a range of low-cost, high-value assessments which are aimed at very specific scenarios (We call these ‘Solutions).These tests and questionnaires differ from bespoke assessments, in that they are exclusively focused on a given set of qualities or attributes relative to the situation. They are designed with the following in mind: Value; Quick turn-around; Easy interpretation; Straightforward use. Here are the ‘Solutions’ we currently focus on: 

Apprenticeship Applicants / General Sales Roles / Management DerailersEmotional Intelligence / Employee WellbeingHealth & Safety Attitudes / Integrity (Work Attitude)

If you’d like to know what other clients (and candidates) think, go here: Testimonials. You can also view a list of clients (be prepared; it’s a long list!).

We’d love to hear from you with any queries, but you can always try here first: FAQ’s. There’s a page for Data Protection. And for news and updates, why not visit the blogAnd just one more thing; Andrew also works in a coaching capacity: Coaching.
