The Recruitment Toolbox

The Recruitment Toolbox

Similar to a builder with a hammer and measuring tape, recruiters have a number of useful tools to assist us in identifying the best person for the job.

These tools complement our recruitment processes (screening, interviewing and reference checking) and provide assurance and validation to our Clients of an individual’s suitability for the job, their company and existing team.

Computer Assessments

Computer skills are required for many positions, our Skillcheck computer assessments effectively assess an individual’s computer capabilities.  A huge range of assessments are available.  Most popular are Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, Typing and Data Entry.  Assessments can be completed online with a quick turnaround, so you can use the information as part of your selection and shortlisting process.

Psychometric Assessments

Reduce the risk in your staff selection by using Psychometric Assessments. These are tests of ability and assessments of personality, designed to provide structured and measurable insight into an individual’s likely behaviour and abilities. Completed easily online, with easy to digest reporting and interpretation. Click here to learn more about these assessments.

Police Check
Security and criminal record background checking via the Ministry of Justice can be streamlined with results received within 24 – 76 hours (up to 3 business days).

Drug Testing

For jobs in which impairment from drugs or alcohol has been identified as a health and safety hazard an applicant will be tested as part of the recruitment process. PN Personnel can organise third party screening with immediate results.

PN Personnel offer these services to all employers and clients, they can be part of a tailored recruitment strategy managed by our team, or used to complement your own recruitment.

Make sure you have the tools you need for a successful recruitment, to discuss your needs, talk to our team at PN Personnel.
