The first service you join will be the Online Tests and Assessments Platform. Psychometric tests have been used to great success recently with over 400,000 tests completed in the past year, reducing sifting costs and shortening recruitment times. These tests were created externally which limited our ability to update and expand them.
The next stage, which you’ll be joining, is to bring test creation in-house. We’re procuring a specialised software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform so that we can develop, assemble and deliver tests. By improving the quality and breadth of our tests we expect to grow rapidly to meet the expanding demand across government. It’s an ambitious plan that stands to transform how the Civil Service recruits so you’ll be at the centre of delivery from the beginning.
You’ll be part of a multi-disciplinary team of experts from both Digital & Analysis and Government Recruitment Service (GRS). Day to day you’ll collaborate closely with the product manager, service owner, occupational psychologists, user researcher, psychometricians, content designer, and interaction designer. You’ll also work closely with the Recruitment Platform for Government (RPG) team and supplier to align teams to common goals.
The successful candidate must be able to clearly demonstrate evidence of the following essential criteria:
