Psychometric Testing

Helping place the right people into the right roles with the combined help of science, technology and psychometric testing.

Pre-employment assessments work best when they're individually tailored to your situation.

We are the only independent provider of psychometric testing in the market.

There is no one size fits all solution because every person and every organisation is unique. Psychometric testing can help you match your company’s needs with the right person for the role.

When you need a candidate who can take conceptual ideas and transfer them into real-world solutions, or spot new trends as they emerge, you need a strong conceptual thinker.

If keeping an eye on the bigger picture while still promoting the finer details is a key capability in your new hire, abstract reasoning assessments can help you identify the right person for the job.


Abstract Reasoning tests can help identify lateral thinkers.

Abstract reasoning assessments measure key competencies in business including:

  • Ability to identify patterns and relationships in data
  • Logical reasoning
  • Information integration and application to problem solving
  • Natural learning capability
  • Systemic approach to problems and developments
  • Identify the best candidates for your role; whether you have an entry level position to fill in the Mining sector, or an executive role in Healthcare, ensure your candidates’ abstract reasoning skills are the best-fit for your needs.
