The 3 levels of psychometric assessment

The Inventum Search candidate assessment profiles an individual across four major trait scales or behavioural characteristics that define temperament, or personality, related specifically to business situation

The assessment is not a skills test or an intelligence test - It’s an assessment of a person’s natural behaviour. It tells how they’ll perform in various situations, how they’ll work with others, what motivates them and where their potential strengths and weaknesses may be.

The three levels of assessment: Appear toCan do… and what we call the Will do level. This tells you how a person will behave on the job.

“I engaged with Inventum Search to identify candidates for a senior role within our London office. What set them apart was the thoroughness of their approach, their sector knowledge and contacts book, and their passion for D&I. By utilising their behavioural and psychometric methodology at the beginning of the search to create a profile of the ideal candidate, Inventum gave me total confidence that they understood our business as well as the key characteristics and skills that would be required by the successful applicant. I was also deeply impressed with Inventum’s bespoke recruitment platform that enabled colleagues in other offices to have full transparency on the process. Their wise counsel, professionalism and plain speaking throughout was thoroughly appreciated, as was their 12-month fee guarantee – far exceeding anything offered by any other search firm. I am delighted to recommend them”.

James Selman, Managing Director, Allison + Partners, Global PR & Communications Agency

"I came to Inventum Search via a recommendation, after being let down by another search firm. What a difference – they were ultra-professional and personable; their speed of response was very impressive, and they delivered us an incredible shortlist of candidates for a senior role in a short time scale. Whilst taking a very detailed brief, the consultants asked pertinent, challenging and thought-provoking questions that really helped clarify our thinking around the ideal applicant, their profile, experience and behaviours. I also liked their cleaver and intuitive use of psychometric and behavioural testing. The whole process was very smooth and efficient, and I am very happy to recommend their services".

Warren Swimer - Finance Director, Regal London

“Guidant Group has worked with Joe Wells and Adam Tobias for well over 10 years and they were the first members of our Strategic Supplier programme. Over that time, they have delivered an excellent service across multiple accounts and the feedback from our Account Managers and delivery consultants is consistently excellent. My own experience with Wells Tobias has also always been outstanding - their level of service, their compliance and expertise are always very impressive. The management team are very open, professional and personable. I can recommend without hesitation.

Ben Weston, Head of Supply Chain and Contracts, Guidant Group
