"It is hard enough for one type completely to understand another type, but the perfect comprehension of another individual is quite impossible."

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)

Psychometric Services

Psychometric tests (aptitude and ability), psychometric assessments (interests and personality measures), and situational judgement tests are used extensively in the UK workplace today, particularly in recruitment & selection; leadership & management coaching; conflict resolution; and for personal development purposes.

Using the right instruments in the right way can bring enormous benefits to your organisation and its people, but used in the wrong way they can cause a lot of damage and harm. The administration and interpretation of psychometric instruments requires specialist training and skills, and practitioners must have an in-depth understanding of the strengths and limitations of each tool.

Our practitioners undertake psychometric accreditation training and demonstrate their competency in instrument use and interpretation, being registered with the British Psychological Society as qualified in Occupational Ability and Personality test use at Level 2 (formerly Level B Intermediate) or above.

The Work Practice is not affiliated to any particular test publisher, so our independent specialists in this field can help you choose the right instrument for any given situation, manage and implement the programme if required, and ensure that your organisation has a safe and beneficial experience.

We offer psychometric testing and assessment as a stand-alone service to supplement clients’ existing activities, and they can be used as a component part of our other services (e.g. conflict resolution, career counselling, coaching, and education) where necessary.
