Merit Solutions

Recruitment and selection services

Merit Solutions - Recruitment Services

Recruitment Services - developing recruitment strategies; advertising through the press, on-line or specialist publications; applicant search; candidate care; screening applicants; psychometric assessment; and supporting recruitment and selection processes as outlined above.

Merit Solutions - Shortlisting Services

Shortlisting of Applicants - currently larger applicant pools are resulting in requests for specialised shortlisting services. Depending on the size of the applicant pool, mix of applicants and number of vacancies, we can suggest the most effective and efficient method to shortlist large fields of applicants. Our consultant's role is to assist the chair of the selection panel by streamlining this stage of the selection process. Our usual approach for a large field of applicants is to undertake an initial review which quickly identifies clearly unsuitable applicants. We then prepare a preliminary shortlist matrix providing comments and an order of merit for the stronger candidates. Shortlisting utilising other assessment tools such as brief structured telephone questioning, work or ability tests or screening questionnaires can also be negotiated as required.

Merit Solutions: Selection Services

Selection Services - offering valuable procedural and policy advice, whether engaged as a member of the selection panel, as a scribe, or in providing other selection support; coordination of large selection processes; shortlisting; preparation of interview questions; development of work sample tests; reference checking; psychometric assessment; preparation of selection report and comparative reports; feedback to applicants; and development of performance and learning plans. The whole focus is on selecting the best applicant for the advertised position.
