What's Covered

Personal Assistant (PA, EA) & Senior Level Secretarial Recruitment Package

Therefore, this is a competence-based Interview Report i.e. it provides areas to probe and also provides relevant interview questions.  As this report is not suitable to be passed to candidates, you are also provided with a complimentary Candidate Feedback Report which can be provided to candidates after selection decisions have been made so that they receive useful feedback for their personal development.  A sample report is available below.

Business Reasoning Test – [Test Information Leaflet]

The report first presents the candidates overall test performance results for business reasoning. This is total test score and therefore covers verbal, numerical, and elements of inductive and deductive reasoning. 

Then it goes on to provide information around the two key areas:

  1. Business Verbal Data: How well the candidate has understood the business written information. This is often referred to as verbal critical reasoning. It looks at the ability of the candidate to accurately assimilate and correctly understand the written business information.
  2. Business Numerical Data: How well the candidate has understood the business data. This is often referred to as numerical critical reasoning. It includes understanding business numerical information and being able to do the correct calculations to work out answers. But it also includes the ability to assimilate non-numerical business data as well, such as identifying relationships and understanding the real meaning of data.

The overall Business Reasoning ability score is based on 24 adaptive questions that have weighted scoring. Typically taking up to 35 minutes to complete.
