Individual assessments:

Woburn has the added benefit to the employer of individual assessments.  We know, employing a person from another country and culture can be a little scary for a business, as taking on a new person is added expense until that person is ‘up and running’, to become profitable to your business.

You can’t rely solely on a CV, a couple of interviews and references.  Irrespective of how experienced people may be, this isn’t sufficient. We offer a Psychometric test, scientifically sound, culturally neutral to fairness and industry specific.

Psychometric Testing considers culture and nationality of an individual.  It is a scientific assessment process and the methodology measures competencies that will deliver to the employer the talent, ability, integrity and workplace suitability to achieve the required objectives.

FACT: Failure can cost 3x an annual salary. Reduce the risk.

Woburn being a leading NZ specialist in Immigration, will also assess the skilled migrant and any accompanying family to ensure they will ‘stack up’ when being processed through the immigration system. Also identifying issues that could slow down the process.
