You’ve tried the free career assessments available online and are frustrated. They either don’t tell you much more than a quiz in a magazine or trick you into having to pay extra for a report – why didn’t they tell you in advance?

There are many career assessments, none will tell you what to do – you make the decision, but they provide information to inform your decision making. They all come with helpful reports and most include a personal feedback session with me.

With over 25 years as a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society I chose tests with good validity and reliability. This means they work and will be helpful.

Career Assessments will help you to understand more about your abilities, personality, interests and more and fall into 4 categories.

Career Ability Tests e.g. Highlands Ability Battery

Under timed conditions find out more about your natural aptitudes. Are you quick to make decisions? How do you problem solve? To what extent can you come up with ideas under pressure?
I recommend the Highlands Ability Battery. This provides objective evidence to help you narrow down your choice and make sure you play to your strengths. It’s a 3-hour assessment covering 19 work samples. The Highlands Ability Battery can be taken alone or as part of the Career Assessment Package a cost-effective way to make a career choice.

Personality Assessments

I offer 3 personality career assessments. All help you understand more about your personality, so you can use this information to help make choices to suit your personality and ideal work environment.
