Managerial & Professional

Aptitude Tests

The Managerial and Professional Series tests, suitable for various education levels, evaluate reasoning, problem-solving, and complex relationship skills. Ideal for graduate recruitment to senior management assessment and development. Our two tests — numerical and verbal reasoning — capture key attributes essential for management roles.

What are Managerial & Professional Tests?

Professional & Managerial assessment tests are a standard tool to evaluate a candidate's suitability for high-level management positions. These tests are often presented in the form of questions related to a realistic workplace setting.

Management assessment testing can be carried out directly by an employer or with the assistance of a recruitment consultant. The approach will vary from company to company and even from role to role. Successful application of managerial and professional level aptitude tests will help employers identify skills that are crucial in management, leadership and other kinds of professional roles.

Exploring Varieties of Management & Professional Tests

Diverse aptitude tests serve specific purposes, evaluating verbal and numerical reasoning among other skills such as concentration, accuracy and comprehension.

Compared to general aptitude tests, management and professional assessments tend to be more intricate, often requiring complex calculations and higher levels of critical thinking. These assessments encompass:

  • Verbal reasoning tests
  • Numerical reasoning tests
  • Deductive reasoning tests (part of our Specialist Series)

As an interviewer, employing a range of managerial-level testing techniques allows you to spotlight candidates' talents and determine their suitability for management and senior roles. This alignment between applicants and positions is paramount for successful hiring.

We have been working with eras for many years now and specifically use the 360 function regularly. The 360 function is fantastic as we can amend it to suit whatever we need. It's easy to use and produces really useful information in a very professional report. When working with eras I've personally found them to be extremely responsive and very helpful, they go out of their way to support and find solutions.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Ability and Personality courses at eras. The trainers are very knowledgeable, bringing the subject of psychometrics to life, and there is a nice blend of practical and theory to cement learning objectives in place. I highly recommend it to HR, L&D or Recruitment professionals!
