Psychometric Testing

Committed to your ability to make the most informed hiring decisions.

What Is Psychometric Testing?

Psychometric Testing is a scientific process that aims to evaluate a candidate’s behavioural style and mental capabilities.

At Research Partners, we provide Psychometric Testing as an additional service to our usual screening and interview processes. We offer both Personality and Ability / Aptitude Psychometric Assessments, and these tests can be used in combination or individually. All tests can be completed online, thus better fitting into candidates’ schedules and not slowing down interview processes.

When To Use Psychometric Testing?

While Psychometric Testing can be used on any search you choose, it is most commonly used to complement executive searches.

Psychometric Assessments can be introduced at any stage of the hiring process, however, we recommend that the testing process be introduced after the first face-to-face interviews, with the preferred three short-listed candidates being put through for testing. This allows additional information from these tests to be utilized alongside the second stage face-to-face client interviews.


Our qualified testing consultant is registered with the British Psychological Society in Occupational Testing. (BPS OTU: Ability and Personality, formerly known as BPS Level A and Level B).
