90 DAYS – FROM START TO SUCCESS

To nurture future leaders, Veredus sources and selects candidates for their potential, rather than just looking to the past and precedence. We’re committed to finding the right people who will lead your organisation forward – and that might not always be the most obvious or easy-to-find candidates.

Once we’ve placed a senior leadership or interim role, we make sure our candidate has the support and resources they need to succeed. We stay in touch for the first 90 days – and beyond if requested – as coach, advisor and mentor to your new leader. We want your business and your staff to succeed, so we’re there every step of the way with the full suite of Capita services ready to be deployed as needed.

At Veredus, we believe in asking ‘What’s next?’. With one eye always on the future, and the resources of Capita, a FTSE 250 organisation, behind us, we’re able to transform organisations and help them shape the future.

ASSESSMENT AND DEVELOPMENT

Assessment Services

The Veredus team of Senior Occupational Psychologists will work with you to identify the most effective solutions. Being cost effective and competitive is also central to what we do, and we will never sell you something that will not add significant value to your processes. Our solutions are specifically targeted at leadership in order to have optimum impact on performance, engagement and culture.

Psychometric Executive Profiling

The process is called “Executive Profiling” and this involves the candidates completing a comprehensive Psychometric test battery prior to an in-depth combined competency-based interview and validation session with a Senior Occupational Psychologist. By using a combination of Psychometrics and a Feedback Session, we can probe the key leadership qualities of importance further together with specific competency-based questions to get as much evidence as possible to feedback to the panel prior to the final interviews. We also provide tailored and comprehensive Profiling Reports on each candidate as part of the process. These can be tailored to meet your requirements and can include as much detail as you require ranging from candidates’ strengths and development areas to executive summaries or written against specific competency areas. We are able to employ a number of different psychometric tools which include but are not limited to; Wave Professional Styles, the Hogan Development Survey, FIRO-B, Motivations, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI), Watson Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal, SWIFT Executive Aptitude Test, Game Changer Index (GCI).

Assessment Centre Design

This will involve us identifying what ‘excellence’ looks like via a thorough job analysis with key stakeholders and subject matter experts to fully explore the behaviours necessary for successful performance in the role. The information gathered will also be used to inform the design of the new exercise content to ensure a high level of accuracy and realism. The types of exercises we are able to design are group exercise, work simulation exercise, analysis exercise, in-tray exercise, project management exercise. We will design all of the materials for each of the exercises and then pilot all of the exercises. Using the observations and gathered evidence, we will assess the suitability of the instructions, content, timings, interview questions, candidate experience, marking frame indicators, as well as ensure that the exercises provide sufficient appropriate evidence to accurately assess candidates against these.

Assessment Centre Delivery

An assessment centre will typically last between 0.5 days and 1 day. It would include one or more of the following exercises, which places the candidate in a situation relative to the role and provides them with opportunities to demonstrate specific competencies. This would be observed by a trained assessor. The aim of an assessment centre is to provide candidates with multiple opportunities to showcase their skills and behaviours. The desired outcome from an assessment centre is to identify those who are most suitable for the role. We have outlined below the types of exercises that we could provide within an Assessment Centre:

  • Analysis Exercise (Presentation and/or report)
  • Work Simulation
  • In-Tray Exercise
  • Group Exercise
  • Media Exercise
