The Assessment Matrix is our blueprint for the recruitment process; it shows how we shortlist candidates.

Our process consists of screening, interviews, document verification, skills testing, personality profiling and reference checks. The ticks indicate the point at which each criteria is addressed.

We address all criteria at least once during the process. More important criteria are checked multiple times.


DISC profiling

Bookkeeper - job profile

A key characteristic for this role is to have a person who is a cooperative team player and is rule oriented, they need to know what to do and when and how to do it. This type of individual would not have the innate urge to take over as leader, but rather would be content to be a member of the team whilst giving credit where credit is due for the contribution of other members of the team.

This type of person is likely to appreciate the support of management and colleagues and prefer to get the job done properly and thoroughly as per the processes. On occasions there may be the need for greater independence and the ability to take a stance and act on their initiative as required by the circumstances.

This role would best suit the type of person who is genuinely keen to provide a service. Such an individual should be happy with an unchanging routine and be amenable to receiving instructions from others, preferring not to be giving the instructions. The role requires someone who will tolerate doing repetitious work over an extended period of time without getting bored and be able to concentrate on detailed work, focusing attention on the work at hand without being distracted by things going on around them.

The position would require a steady and patient type of individual, who does not easily become ruffled, as long as the environment is predictable. The role is unlikely to provide much variation and the sort of person who is best suited would be someone who is uncomfortable with change without warning. Given sufficient notice, the individual should be able to prepare for change and cope well, however, they would be quite uncomfortable if there is little time to prepare for the change.

The role requires someone who would need to work at a steady pace taking more time preparing, and consequently perhaps being more efficient over time, than a person who reacts with a sense of urgency. This type of person is likely to specialise in this discipline and will have satisfaction from doing the job rather than by climbing up though the ranks of the organisation.
