Selection Services

PMSelect provides vital decision support to clients through the provision of selection methods and assessment centres using proprietary tools.

The assessment process

For recruitment, an assessment plan is developed as part of the overall project plan for the assignment. The plan and selection methods are chosen to suit the Recruitment Requirement and the level at which the appointment is to be made.

The plan is normally arranged in three stages, each stage acting as a filter, and applying progressively rigorous selection criteria. The field of candidates reduces in size at each stage. The client will usually wish to introduce final choice candidates to executives and potential colleagues at the final stage.
