Candidate Profile Match
With the considerable diversity of sectors, disciplines and specific areas of Research and Development within the Life Sciences industry, it is essential that a comprehensive profile of each scientist is established at an early stage of the recruitment process. The primary areas of candidate assessment are driven by the job specification, both in terms of the essential deliverables, but also the relative importance of each component. Insertion of the candidate’s identified scores into the Profile Model provides a simple graphical analysis, offering an immediate powerful image of the candidate’s compatibility to each key deliverable. The chart above provides an example of a relatively strong candidate, but having a weakness in a key performance area. Desired levels of ability are attained in their IT Literacy Profile (ITLP) and they have superior scores in education, qualifications (EQP) and professional association profiles (PAP). They are, however, slightly weaker than the required strength for technology expertise (TEP), but considerably below par on their relevant work experience (RWEP). This candidate delivered a compatibility index of 74.7%.
Personality Type Assessment
Perhaps the most universally respected and adopted models of personality assessment are those based on the works of Carl Jung, the Swiss psychologist and psychiatrist. Evaluations are built on the establishment of four principal personality traits which have been shown to drive each individual’s reactions, interactions, positioning and decision making styles. Once short-listed and subject to Candidate approval, a personality assessment will be undertaken using the Jung Typology Profiler for Workplace™. A report will be generated which will include essential facts focused on work-related aspects of each candidate’s personality.
