A leadership audit is a comprehensive review of where your leadership is currently at, good and bad. It ascertains what is working well, whether there are any skill gaps, and objectively recommends what could be put in place to improve your leadership hierarchy. The leadership auditing process can be performed at any level of authority, from Team Leader to CEO and everywhere in-between. To learn more about leadership audits, click here.

Hiring Team

Ensuring that your hiring team are all in alignment when deciding on whom to welcome to the company is vital. If your hiring team all have different priorities for what they want from the new hire then it rarely works out, wasting vital time, money, and resources.  With our market-leading assessment tool, everyone on the hiring team takes the same short test prior to the interviewing stage. The candidates then take the same test, and all the results are analysed and compared. By comparing data between what the candidates and the board/hiring team wants, synchronicity and longevity in the job are all but guaranteed and bad hires become a thing of the past.

Lots of companies use psychometric assessment, but the way in which we use psychometric testing and assessment means that we have achieved a post-hire retention record of 96%. Candidates answer a series of questions that ultimately determine their unique default behavioural setting. The data is then analysed to see which candidates are best aligned to your company values. If you don’t want to use Mercury Hampton IQ, then this psychometric assessment tool is also available to use as a singular product. Want more details on this? Click here.


Aptitude testing is designed to test the knowledge and skills of the person taking them, including numerical, problem-solving, and prioritisation capabilities. They can be used in a multitude of different sectors too, including technical, construction, and engineering. Oftentimes, technical vacancies require varying levels of skill, and the aptitude test takes just fifteen minutes to determine whether the candidate is suitable for the position they are applying for, saving countless hours of interviewing time.

Restructuring a business, corporate or SME, can be a traumatic time for all involved.

They will ensure that the process runs smoothly, that communication is key, and the business is just as healthy, if not healthier, at the end. Want to ask our restructuring expert more?

When it comes to hiring for mechanical vacancies, we know that there are as many mechanical variants as there are people to apply for the job! While an applicant may look perfect on paper thanks to their academic achievements, the vacancy may call for someone with more hands-on experience, and vice versa. Our mechanical test can determine the candidates range of skills, knowledge, and suitability for the vacancy. This saves huge amounts of wasted time, energy, and resources on interviewing and hiring the wrong person. Click here for a demonstration of the mechanical test.
