Assessment Centres for External Candidates
Management. Executives. Experts.
Our HR consultants support you as a company in the selection of external candidates for your management or directorate positions, for your executive and leadership positions as well as key vacancies. Our experienced business economists and organizational psychologists develop an individual assessment centre for each vacancy that is to be filled with external candidates. We not only take into account the required professional competencies associated with the position, but also discuss which methodological and management skills, as well as which social competencies a candidate must bring. The latter also includes that the candidate fits in with your company, the industry and your customers and business partners.
By keeping these different aspects in mind when preparing, conducting, and evaluating assessment centres with external candidates, we are able to identify the candidate who fits in with you, fulfils all the professional requirements and will help you as a company. This is particularly important when filling management vacancies and executive positions. Accordingly, the focus here is on soft skills and experience. When filling managerial and key positions, on the other hand, candidates are thoroughly tested for their professional competencies and management skills - often in a multi-stage process.
In order to ensure that each selection process is suitably aligned, our HR consultants are in close contact with you and together we define what you expect from the candidate. On this basis, we prepare the assessment centre. The basic procedure always remains the same:
- Preparation of the content and logistics of the assessment centre
- Briefing of our team, your HR department and the observers, if necessary
- Conducting the assessment centre
- Compilation of the results and subsequent individual evaluation of the candidates
- Joint personnel decision
- Feedback to candidates & rejection management
- Contract & salary negotiations
- If necessary, further requirement planning
