Are you applying for a role or a promotion?

Congratulations on your decision to apply for a new role or promotion. This is an exciting time full of potential and unchartered territory. You are most likely here because you have been asked to fill out one of our assessments. Here we provide you with some background as to why your potential employer has asked you to do this.

McQuaig is often used to provide guidance on career progression to new and existing employees. It allows an employer to benchmark the behavioural requirements of a role.

This helps ensure many classic recruitment mistakes aren’t made. When people are placed in the right role they are happier and their morale is often higher. For example: psychometric reports can help organisations ensure that outgoing people aren’t tucked up out of the way by themselves with no social interaction.

The reports can also help ensure that people who understand and value the importance of getting the detail right aren’t put in situations where they are constantly asked to gloss over the specifics. These may be simplistic examples but it matters!

When employers use McQuaig to recruit and promote they are looking to see what natural strengths you have and how they compare with the needs of the job.

“People in the right job are happier and enjoy greater job satisfaction.”

We will never suggest that we can produce a complete picture of you. You are far more complex than any set of scores. A comprehensive interview process supports McQuaig to ensure you get your chance to shine.

The best advice we can give you is to be true to you. From all of us at Holst we wish you the very best of luck in your search for your new role.
