Register now for the free seminar: Understanding psychometrics

Confident Candidates - Leave less to chance!

The CIPD reports increased use of psychometrics both in recruitment and in selection for redundancy. (OK, selection for posts within the 'new structure' which if you don't get one may result in your redundancy) As part of our philosophy of supporting people to achieve their goals and helping to create confidence in candidates we are running a FREE workshop about how to overcome your fears of Assessment Centres.

This seminar is targeted at middle and senior managers and will use examples of tests exercises used in recruitment at that level, however much of the information is applicable to posts at other levels.

Date:  18 January 2011

Time:   6.30-8.30

Venue:Holiday Inn, Oxford Circus, Welbeck Street off Oxford Street, Central London, W1G 9BL

Trainers: Mary Hope FCIPD and Richard Colwell of CareerCoachZing
