“Vallourec Mannesman Oil & Gas has been working with MK Recruitment and Selection for some years now and have found them an excellent recruitment partner.

Their service offering was further enhanced last year with the introduction of MK Business Psychology.  Since this date we have used the expertise of their team of Occupational & Business Psychologists to help profile the ideal candidate, select the right personality instrument, administer tests, and more importantly interpret the findings.

I have found the quality of feedback and speed of response to be of a high standard. These qualities are of particular importance when you are sometimes recruiting under time pressures within a very busy HR department. Their reports are customised to the role (not just standard system generated reports) and help guide our final stage interviews, highlighting areas needing further investigation to either validate candidate strengths or to probe areas where the candidate may be less suited to role requirements. The net effect has been greater level of information to help differentiate between suitable candidates and ultimately even more effective hiring decisions”.

"Waukesha Bearings has developed a strong relationship with MK as a valued recruitment partner for some year now.  Since 2010 this relationship has been further strengthened through the use of their Business Psychology sister company for the assessment of key personnel.

In recent times the business psychology team have conducted individual assessments for roles across diverse business functions, including business systems, human resources and finance.  In depth reports generated from these assessments including personality assessment, ability testing (as required) and structured interview feedback has assisted us greatly in our decision making about which candidate to appoint. 

Moreover having access to such expert advice close to our Scottish Headquarters has facilitated even faster implementation of our selection process by allowing us to tailor session times more closely to candidate availability.  This improved responsiveness to candidate’s needs has further enhanced our ability to attract quality candidates. We look forward to working even more closely with MK over the coming years."

Gordon Watt, Group HR Manager, Waukesha Bearings

“Rob and his team of business psychologists have been our partner of choice for the development of our organisational competency frameworks and the design and delivery of our selection processes for over 7 years now.

They continue to provide a high quality, efficient, and professional service to the utmost ethical standards.  Their ability to combine detailed insight about the pharmaceutical industry with what drives effective performance for various job roles across the business ensures we run robust selection events and helps separate them from other companies providing such services.  This has enabled us to continue selecting talented personnel and present a professional image of the company to future candidates”.
