Case study: Helping Manchester Growth Company look beyond the CV

17th October 2019

Manchester Growth Company/GC Business Growth Hub

The Growth Company is one of the largest employers in the region and has helped to generate hundreds of millions worth of investment and growth in the north-west and is dedicated to economic development, inward investment, skills, employment and enterprise. This requires employing a diverse workforce and key people to work in specific roles within the organisation.

The Growth Company and GC Business Growth Hub recognised the challenges of looking beyond the person’s CV when it came to recruiting to key people for their innovation manager roles, due to the diverse and flexible type of work involved. This role also required being able to identify certain core traits, shared values, attitude and characteristics.

Our Big 5 psychometric recruitment assessment and reports tool is scientifically benchmarked and it enabled their HR and recruitment team to immediately save time, money and most importantly – appoint the right people to the right job role.  

“Following an initial trial of Big 5 psychometric assessment we found this tool offered accurate candidate matching and confirmed our decisions about who to hire and those who we didn’t think were suitable or matched our criteria. We found this solution offered us good value for money.

We would recommend any recruiting Manager to utilise this tool as it represented good value for money.
