NHS Foundation Trusts regularly engage The OPG on Trust board, leadership recruitment and succession planning issues. Our consultants are frequently instructed to assess internal and external candidates. Roles assessed range from COO to grade 8a leaders. This has also included numerous Medical Director appointments, several Financial Director hires and two Communications Director appointments as well as CEO roles.
Some clients have hired us to provide online psychometric assessment with telephone feedback and bespoke reports. while others have requested full assessment centre solutions. Colleagues at our sister practice, Ramsey Hall, accept Executive Search mandates in these areas.
Many appointments are high profile, every appointment is critical and every assessment is ‘high stakes’. From the position that the wrong hire could potentially cause financial and/or reputational damage to the trust. This is where The OPG is really able to add value to the recruitment & selection process. Because each of our assessments is 100% objective and conducted independently. We’re able to apply market leading psychometric evaluation to reveal attributes that interviews alone cannot identify.
