Candidates

Showcase your natural strengths in a more authentic way through our behavioural assessments.

Immerse yourself in the assessment experience

You’ve received an invitation to complete our assessment. Congratulations! We realise this can be a bit daunting, particularly if this is the first time you have encountered an app-based behavioural assessment. But don’t worry, this page will provide you with all of the information you need.
So why are companies increasingly adopting this type of technology within their recruitment programmes? It’s simple – behavioural assessments provide an objective, data-driven and bias-free way to assess a candidate’s fit for a role. Don’t confuse the graphically rich interface and engaging elements for a game! This assessment is as equally scientific and carefully constructed as traditional psychometric measures.

This technology also offers various advantages for YOU as a candidate:

Immersive and Engaging

Our interface and user experience is designed to be engaging. We want you to be focused and immersed in the task and not worry about being assessed.

Less Stressful

82% of candidates feel more relaxed when completing our behavioural assessments in comparison to traditional psychometric measures.

Don’t take it from us, look at what your peers had to say

The Process

You will receive an email invitation once you have successfully completed the application questions. At this stage, you will have the opportunity to try the Arctic Shores Trial App.

You will then be asked to complete up to nine levels of our behavioural assessment and, in some instances, additional aptitude levels. This will take between 30 and 45 minutes.

Depending on your prospective employer’s policy, you may receive a detailed report outlining your areas of strengths and development.

What to expect from the assessment

Our behavioural assessment consists of a series of tasks across various levels in an interactive interface. Each level has been specifically designed to capture how you go about tackling challenges, allowing us to objectively measure how you naturally approach problems and react to changes in requirements, risk and uncertainty.

How to prepare

In order to get the most out of the assessment experience, and be able to showcase your natural strengths and behavioural preferences in an authentic way, please ensure the following conditions are met.

How to interpret the report

If the prospective employer chooses to do so, upon completing our assessment, you will instantly receive a report outlining your natural strengths and behaviour preferences through a list of traits.

Each trait is shown on a spectrum, with two opposing behaviours on either end. Neither is better than the other, and the ideal combination of traits will differ from role to role.

Please keep in mind that you are being compared to a norm group – a broad and varied group of people who have also completed this assessment, representing the expected applicant and employee sample in terms of demographics, educational background, and career preference. Your score is calculated relative to the characteristics of that group, and it is not meant to be an absolute description of your psychological profile.

For example, while you may appear extraverted in comparison to your friend group, should you be compared to a norm group that happens to be above average in extraversion, your score will be lower than expected, and the opposite would happen if your data is instead scored against a norm group of introverts.
