Employability

In today's world supporting individuals with employability, job search and career development is a key priority. Whether you are an employability provider, educational institution or simply an individual wanting to develop their potential we can help.

For individuals to develop their full potential you need to know what makes them tick. You need know how to get the best out of them and build their confidence. You need to play to their strengths.

Self Awareness can help. Our unique diagnostic allows individuals to understand and develop their soft skills, which is increasingly what we know employers value.

“It is the hard skills that get you the interview and the soft skills that get you the job – and help you to keep it”

Self Awareness also helps you match individuals to the right opportunities. Our Job Matching system compares candidates' profiles against that required for an employer's job vacancy to give an indication of soft skills fit. This has been widely tried and tested and is a proven aid to right first time recruitment, saving employers both time and money. Combining both hard and soft skills into the shortlisting process helps both employer and interviewees arrive at the interview streets ahead of the game.

Self Awareness soft skill profiles and matching helps create an informed interviewee list with candidates suited, ready and keen to take on the challenges in a role that fits their own qualities and strengths.
