The Science Behind the Thomas Job Profiler: Data Sheet

When recruiting, Thomas Perform makes it easy to quickly create a job profile that is grounded in science, even if you’re not a psychologist. It’s simple to then compare candidates’ assessment results to this profile using star ratings to add objectivity and help you predict which will be the best applicant for the role.

The whole process takes just minutes, during which you define the aptitude requirements of the role and the key behavioural and personality characteristics of the ideal candidate. For example, are you recruiting for a senior or entry-level position? Is the role fast paced? Will the work involved evolve over time, or stay relatively consistent? Should your ideal candidate be analytical, communicative, process oriented or independent?

These seemingly simple choices enable you to create a very effective psychological profile of the ideal candidate for a role without requiring any knowledge of organisational psychology.
