Business Profiling Ireland

What is Profiling or Psychometric Testing?

It is a method of quantifying the underlying abilities, interests and work preferences of individuals. We use three types of tests, ability, aptitude and occupational personality. They measure a person's potential to learn the skills needed for a particular job. A combination of several tests may be used to gain an objective assessment of an individual.

Why are they used?

Effective testing ensures that an organisation or an individual makes informed decisions in relation to a wide range of organisational and personal needs.

Tests can be used in the following ways:

  • Individual Assessments for selection or development purposes
  • Management and Career development planning
  • Individual coaching
  • Career guidance for students and adults
  • Outplacement
  • Succession planning
  • Identification of individual and training needs

Where are they conducted?

  • In house
  • Hotels
  • On-line
  • Office of Profiles at Work

They are a cost effective way of ensuring you are the right 'fit' for the job you already have or aspire to achieve.

We are licensed to use material developed by Saville Holdsworth, world leaders in the development of scientifically validated assessment tools.
