Michael has considerable experience in working at the most senior organisational levels. He understands that his part in the recruitment and development process sends an important message to employees and candidates about the organisation’s commitment to a fair and level playing field where equality of opportunity reigns. He is sensitive to the rapport that needs establishing with employees and candidates to ensure that they engage positively with the process. Further, his collaborative approach enables employees and candidates to recognise the value of the psychometric profiles in deepening and broadening the picture they paint of themselves in a way that is not possible through interviewing alone. In this way, Michael ensures that those with who he works feel a sense of ownership over their profiles, so recognising their relevance to the selection process and to their continuing professional development.
