Psychological Assessment & Staff Screening: Our Process


The starting point for this process is a conversation with an organisation or agency, during which the specific needs and requirements are identified.

As a result of our training and experience in this area, the professionals at themindspace are able to draw on previous experience while also being flexible and adaptive in meeting specific needs.

Our aim is to understand the need and then design and build the assessment process and reports that will meet the need. Once this process has been designed and built to your needs, individuals from your organisation are easily able to access the process as required.

01 Initial Contact

When an assessment is required, all you need to do is direct the individuals undergoing the assessment to us.

From the point they make contact with us, our staff are able to walk a participant through the process, ensuring that the final report is received by your organisation within the required time-frame.

02 Completion of Online Testing

The initial phase of the assessment involves the individual completing a series of online tests.

Results from these tests are sent directly to the psychologist completing the assessment report.

03 Completion of Interview

As part of the assessment process, the individual completes a one-hour interview with a psychologist.

This interview can be completed face-to-face or via video-conference, depending on the geographical location of the individual.

04 Interview and Testing Data Review

Once the interview and online testing has been completed, the resulting data is reviewed by our team of expert assessors.

This interactive and collaborative team process enables us to ensure we are providing an exceptionally high-quality product as well as increasing the reliability and validity of our findings and recommendations.

05 Completion of Formal Psychological Report

Following the review of the data, a formal report is completed.

This report contains relevant background information for the individual, a summary of the test results, and a series of recommendations tailored to their potential role and context.

Employee Screening for Senior Leadership Roles


There is an increasing body of research identifying the importance of establishing a healthy ‘fit’ between staff, their community, and their role within their community.

The cost to a community resulting from a poor fit is significant. Employee screening with themindspace provides school boards and decision-making groups at other organisations with psychological data about prospective staff, aiding in the selection process and helping to reduce poor fit.

The employee screening process involves:

A formal interview and completion of standardised psychological profiling with a focus on personality, leadership skills, strengths and weaknesses.

The completion of a written psychological report and provision of this report to decision-making groups as well as the attendance of the assessor at a relevant meeting in order to present the report/s and discuss the findings.
