NDK International Partnership
Following the successful MBO of executive Recruitment Company NDK International in October 2008 the new company which emerged from the deal, Iceberg Consulting has secured a significant partnership agreement with one of the countries foremost psychometric assessment providers TalentQ.
TalentQ was founded by Roger Holdsworth who through his previous company SHL has pioneered work place psychometric assessment for the last 30 years.
This partnership between TalentQ and Iceberg Consulting based in Liverpool enables Northwest companies big and small to take advantage of a credible and cost effective alternative to the current assessment products available.
Companies are increasingly using Psychometric assessments in their recruitment and development processes, something that we envisage increasing this year as the number of applicants seeking work increases. These assessments can also be used to assess how people may adapt themselves when going through significant forced changes like redundancy or reorganisation.
These processes require experienced people to administer and review the results and can be costly. The TalentQ products offered through Iceberg are significantly more cost effective and offer simplified administration processes. In addition Iceberg can offer full BPS A and B accreditation via a Blended learning approach and day classroom session at their Liverpool offices.
Iceberg Consulting are working with a number of local companies delivering their portfolio of assessment and development services to help them recruit and retain the best people.
Alex Martin Performance Director at Iceberg said this agreement acknowledges that the Northwest is definitely still open for business he added companies who want to really understand what makes there employees tick no longer have to look to London or Oxford for support.
