I.T. Psychometrics


Psychometric assessment is a procedure used by psychologists to gain a better understanding of a person’s ability and personality. It involves a series of questions that are answered by the candidate and then scored and interpreted to develop a profile that includes information that cannot be obtained by interviews or reference checks alone.

Psychometrics do not replace traditional techniques such as interviewing, instead, they complement them by providing additional information and therefore a more accurate assessment of the candidate.

Here at HQ Recruiting we offer psychometric testing as an addition to our regular recruitment services. It is an investment we believe can pay dividends for our clients to ensure candidates are the best fit for roles in existing teams.
