You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.
To help us to start building your profile we will send you a number of questionnaires to be completed prior to your consultation. These include completing a personal, career & education history, and personality, interests and values questionnaires to identify your personality traits, preferences and needs, particularly in relation to work. Some are multiple choice and are designed to show how much you like or dislike a spectrum of interests and activities. Some ask for you to rate how much a certain attitude or behaviour matches your own. You’ll be intrigued by having to decide which activities and situations you genuinely prefer.
You will then come and spend a day with us at St Martin’s House in London, just a short walk from King’s Cross/St Pancras and Euston stations.
On the day of your consultation, the morning will be dedicated to aptitude assessment and profiling. You don’t pass or fail an assessment! We are simply trying to build a true, holistic picture of your character. What’s interesting is that they show up qualities that previous academic performance and employment achievements may not unearth – information that cannot be uncovered in any other way.
The objective of all our assessments is to build an accurate profile of who you are, what motivates you? What are your strengths and weaknesses? What are your values and beliefs? What gets you up in the morning?
In the afternoon you will meet with your consultant, a fully trained Occupational Psychologist who, having carefully analysed the data, interprets the results in the light of your current personal circumstances, past experience, needs and aspirations. He or she will help to identify new options, define goals and develop an action plan for the future.
Your consultant will then follow up with a comprehensive written report of the assessment results and career counselling session, documenting the action plan and the many practical follow-up steps discussed during the session.
