Psychometric Tests and Personality Assessments

Psychometric testing

Employers are using psychometric tests more frequently to assess candidates' abilities and aptitudes in certain areas. The results are presented in a standardised way, which helps employers make accurate and objective comparisons between you and other candidates.


Personality assessments are not used in isolation but as part of the wider picture of evidence that the employer collects about you. There are no right or wrong answers, and you cannot pass or fail.  Employers may use your results as a starting point for discussing your experiences and interests in an interview, to see how you would fit with the role they have open.
