Providing a valuable service for employers PTS have been here at Pine House, Ransom Wood since 2008 and provide a full testing service to all sectors of industry.
Psychometric tests are as the word describes ‘psycho’ – the mind and ‘metric’ – to measure so all psychometric tests or assessments are some form of measurement of mental ability. Whether it is how good you are at maths or what type of person you are, the range of tests available is immense.
Used since the early 20th century Psychometric tests were originally developed for use in the educational sector with some universities’ psychology departments playing a key role in test development. These days, outside of education, you are most likely to encounter psychometric testing as part of the recruitment or selection process. Tests of this sort are devised by occupational psychologists and their aim is to provide employers with a reliable method of selecting the most suitable job applicants or candidates for promotion or further development. Measuring attributes like intelligence, aptitude and personality they provide a potential employer with an insight into how well you work with other people, how well you handle stress, and whether you will be able to cope with the intellectual demands of the job.
Tests can be completed either on-line or by pencil and paper in the client’s premises; we offer both options as part of our service. It is also recommended that test practitioners are fully qualified and registered with the British Psychological Society.
Testing has a number of benefits and not just for the employer. They enable the employer to select the most suitable staff to either employ or promote and also provide protection for the prospective employee in not placing them in a post that is outside of their abilities where certain failure awaits them. I am sure that no one would condone poor recruitment processes or accept the enormous cost that this creates.
The price will vary from £15.00 for a basic skills test to several hundred pounds for an in-depth assessment using something as complex as the NEO PI-R. But typically we charge £75.00 (+vat) for our PTS-PPS full five factor personality assessment and £25.00 (+vat) for our mental ability test.
If you are interested in using psychometric testing for either recruitment or staff development please call PTS on 01623 664519, take a look at our web site or call in to see us at Pine House.

A great venue
This is such a beautiful setting for an office. Lovely & peaceful and the Ransomwood team are excellent! The maintenance team are always around if needed, great internet facilities and a fabulous café onsite too. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for premises in the area.
Nice place for a business meeting
I was on a speed awareness course at Ransom Hall, so not the ideal situation. The place however looked lovely. Very tranquil.
Lovely animals to watch and birds
A well maintained business grounds with 100s of offices and a restaurant in the centre. Speed controlled and beautiful woodland surroundings, this place seems to be consistently upgrading.
Great park to host a business
Love this place
We rent an office here and it’s just such a lovely place to drive into everyday
Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
Absolutely spot on as regards setting up a virtual office. Really friendly and helpful reception staff, with onsite meeting rooms available if needed. Very pleased.
Great place for taking pets a walk, lovely cafe with meeting rooms.
