Success profiles Blackpool
Success Profiles is the new system for recruitment and selection being rolled out across the UK Civil Service to replace the current Civil Service Competency Framework
Success profiles contains 5 elements (Behaviours, Experience, Ability, Technical and Strengths), which managers can choose from when deciding how to select for a vacancy, much of which is very similar to the existing system. The significant change of approach comes where managers choose to use the Strengths element. The principle behind Strengths is to look at those things we do regularly, do well and that motivate us. As well as measuring evidence of performance, Strengths based assessment looks at engagement and motivation.
The event will offer:
An understanding of Strengths within the new Success Profiles system
Familiarity with the Strengths Dictionary
Insight into how Strengths may be used in selection
An awareness of how Strengths can be measured and scored
These sessions are open to every civil servant. Please register with your government email address (not personal).
