Throughout my career I've always recognised the assessments I carry out have a huge impact on the lives of the people I assess. I enjoy creating an environment for a candidate which is relaxed and friendly and where they can be themselves. This helps them to showcase what they can do and helps organisations to get a better understanding of their capabilities.
I'm really passionate about providing accurate assessments that help individuals and organisations make the best quality decisions regarding career progression and development. Getting that balance of achieving pragmatic quality solutions based on my in depth experience of assessment technology is what it's all about for me.
The area of assessment has always been shrouded in mystery which can be frustrating for clients. I believe that there are easier ways to do things and that's what we aim for at Indigo Assessment.
I've always enjoyed being able to adapt my approach to assessment to suit the needs of a particular client or project. I think the key to making an assessment work really well is to keep things practical and straightforward. Clients and candidates both appreciate that.
I love getting 'under the skin' of candidates - really understanding 'what makes them tick' and the extent to which that matches what my client is looking for. Using objective assessment techniques helps me ensure that I make accurate judgements so that we get the right fit of candidate to job.
For me, it's really about the evaluation of risk and the bottom line. Whether you are looking for a CEO or recruiting a cast of thousands, the judicious use of good assessment maximises your chances of identifying candidates who will add value to your business and helps them find an environment that they can thrive in, and which enables them to do their best.
