How are they relevant to assessing my ability to do the role I have applied for?
Here at RM, we care. We care about making sure that our recruitment fairly, and robustly, identifies the right people for the job.
That’s why we use a combination of selection methods in our recruitment process. Essentially these verbal and numerical reasoning tests assess the degree to which someone is able to review, and process, information to develop plans and define priorities/ objectives quickly.
Extensive scientific research shows that cognitive aptitude tests (such as numerical and verbal reasoning assessments) are a robust predictor of job performance across a wide variety of occupations.
Why does RM apply the recruitment process that it does?
We are proud of the fact that scientific research repeatedly shows that the approach RM applies (a combination of structured interviews and cognitive ability tests) is one of most robust combinations of selection methods that can be used to successfully predict future job performance.
Both RM and our candidates can therefore be sure that we are doing everything we can to ensure we have the best possible skills, knowledge and expertise within our company to successfully achieve our objective of helping teachers to teach and learners to learn.
