Reporting to the MD, this role offers many learning opportunities to work with seasoned practitioners who have earned the confidence of investors and top corporate executives. Your focus will be on delivering services in Executive Assessment, Talent Management and Coaching as part of the JQA team. Our ability to identify and accurately assess the “success factors” means that we have retained and increased business from clients over decades and they recognise the importance of our contribution to their ambitions. JQA uses digital solutions to receive and deliver commissions for work from clients and delivers these in a bespoke manner. Expert judgement plays a key role as we take a holistic approach to assessment which requires a multi-dimensional assessment of individuals and a rich insight into their potential for career advancement and high performance.

At least ten years’ experience, preferably with global multi-nationals across sectors such as Energy, Engineering, Finance, Manufacturing, Minerals, Mining, and Professional Services.  We’re looking for a passion for applying psychological expertise and evidence-based practice. Successful candidates will have a proven track record showing excellence in these areas:

  • Client and candidate management skills
  • Strong intellectual and emotional skills
