Get it right for the long term…

Making a more informed decision on the full range of required skills and abilities of clinical candidates is challenging.

Our aim is to help organisations base their clinical recruitment decisions on the best possible information. Typically this involves enhancing the information your final selection panel will have on candidates’ leadership skills and personal qualities.

Our assessment provides baseline behavioural information that underpins the essential appointment criteria.

Suggesting areas for further exploration…

Examples of areas we can suggest for final interview extended exploration that may otherwise be overlooked (these have been taken from real examples)…

  • A candidates’ ability to inspire clinical colleagues
  • A candidates’ ability to hold others to account
  • A candidates’ ability to manage themsleves in stressful situations

I really enjoyed the day and took away a great deal; confidence in my strengths and appreciation of areas that I need to work on. I think the relaxed, yet professional manner, created by Dearden helped to bring the best out of the participants including myself. The development report and in particular the competency dimension guidance is a valuable output that I will certainly get value from going forward.
