We help police forces and police training agencies to select key talent for mission critical roles. Through best-in-breed assessment content that can be tailored for your organisation, we deliver fair and objective assessment via ground-breaking technology. Our solutions are often experiential or immersive meaning that your candidates get a thorough understanding of police roles and you are therefore more likely to get great fit-to-role.

“We want to recruit and select the best talent for our future Police Officer roles and that means we need a fair, cost effective and efficient process. Our new online pre-assessment process ensures we select those who best match our behavioural selection criteria from a broad pool of candidates.”

“The application stage is traditionally the biggest challenge on a campaign of this size involving large teams checking and shortlisting, but using the new sifting tool [SIFT] we only needed a team of three people saving us 203 working days! The cost to process an application has gone from £8.66 to £0.36 when we look at the human resources involved! We simply can’t afford not to use SIFT going forwards.”
