Pet&r - Personnel, Equality, Training & Recruitment

Monthly E-Newsletter


Many small or new organisations do not have the experience or documents required to cope with taking on staff. Pet&r can provide a complete service in this area from looking at what the job requires, through to the first few weeks of employment.

Induction and Staff Handbooks

Once you have found your new employee it doesn't stop there. It is a daunting experience starting at a new place or work, you don't know anyone and you are unsure of all the specific roles and procedures within the organisation. This settling in period can be difficult for both employee and employer, Pet&r can help you develop systems and resources which will help employees settle into their new position quicker and easier. These include developing appropriate induction procedures and staff handbooks to give the new employee all the information they need in an appropriate format, as well as designing any initial training programmes to get the new employee up to speed as quickly as possible.

Recruitment Documentation and Interviewing

We are experienced in recruitment at all levels from Modern Apprentices to Chief Executives. We work with you to develop recruitment documentation that attract the right candidates, make it easy to shortlist, and formulate critical questions. These include job descriptions, person specifications, job adverts, interview questions and techniques. We have considerable experience of training panel members drawn from the community or multi-agency partner organisations. If required we can also sit on interview panels, offering professional advice during the interview process.

Selection Testing

Using behaviour event techniques we can improve the quality of information that clients can get from their candidates and enable them to justify their decisions.

The Executive, Management, and Graduate Item Bank assesses verbal, numerical, and abstract reasoning. The Graduate and Managerial Assessment can also assess verbal, numerical, and abstract reasoning, but at the highest levels of the organisation.

The General Ability Tests 2 consists of five ability assessments that measure general intellectual abilities required for success in the workplace: verbal; non-verbal; numerical; spatial; and mechanical.

The Modern Occupational Skills Tests assess up to nine separate abilities in a straightforward and time efficient way. (Verbal Checking, Numerical Awareness, Filing, Spelling and Grammar, Word Meanings, Numerical Estimation, Technical Checking, and Decision Making).

ILM 72 (Integrated Leadership Model) enables the identification of key skills and competencies for effective leadership and informs effective coaching and personal development. It explains an individuals adopted leadership style and identifies how this style can be developed.

Assessment Centre self-assessment questionnaires offer useful insights into how individuals rate their own skills and abilities. We can offer a range of measures on factors such as Influencing, Emotional Control, Leadership, Communications, Assertiveness, Project Management, and Learning Styles.
