Businesses around the world benefit from Korn Ferry UK’s personalised recruitment processes. The company provides tailored assessment packages for all kinds of businesses in the legal sector and beyond, so companies can hire the people best suited to the roles. Their assessments are always underpinned by the same four themes: competencies, experience, drivers and traits, because drawing out this information is crucial for a well rounded view of the people you’re hiring. While Korn Ferry does produce aptitude tests, its main focus is on personality-based questionnaires:

The Career Survey Questionnaire

This is where candidates can go into further detail on any relevant legal experience and history they may have.

Personality Inventory Test

This test delves deeper into your personality to ensure you’d be the right fit for the job you’re applying for.

Leadership Assessment

The legal sector always needs strong leaders, and this test assesses those skills and drivers.
