Tailored Risk Assessment Interview Technique


The SAFESELECT Psychometric Testing System includes a unique TRAIT interview approach designed to find out who the applicant really is, rather than who they say they are.

Our TRAIT interview system has been developed over the last 35 years.  This depth of experience has allowed us to develop numerous techniques to assess how candid applicants are being in describing themselves.

The interview questions are in-depth and thorough, whilst also being completely job-related and defensible.  Most importantly, we tailor the interview specifically to your organisational requirements.

The interview complements the psychological test findings, allowing the panel to check and cross check data from different sources.

Our interview is tailored for specific professions.  In addition, we are also happy to tailor the interview for each client’s unique requirements.

With the completion of our Training and Certification Workshop, capable staff can conduct the interview.  We recommend that everyone involved in conducting interviews participate in the Workshop.  We also encourage supervisors or managers who oversee the hiring process to attend.

We provide unlimited telephone support to interview panels, responding to any questions they have.  In the very unlikely event that the panel is unable to formulate a final opinion, a telephone conference with us will quickly help resolve the dilemma.

Coroner's Court NSW: Inquest into the Fire at Quaker's Hill Nursing Home

11 September 2015

Mr. Roger Dean was hired to work as a nurse on the night shift at this nursing home.  He began employment on September 13, 2011.  He was hired on the basis of one interview and confirmation that he held a nursing certificate. His resume showed that he had worked at a cake shop since 2007.  It was later revealed that the shop was owned by his domestic partner.  (Why a registered nurse would spend four years working in a cake shop was never queried.)  His last experience working in aged care was listed as being in 2001-2002.  In fact, he had been employed in numerous aged care roles before applying to Quakers Hill, and as was later discovered, had difficulty at each of them.
