Best-Fit Assessment Process

Our Best-Fit Assessment process ensures an optimal fit between our client’s culture and the candidate’s values and ways of working. We use our Candidate-Culture-Assessor model to determine the best candidate fit for our client and to highlight any areas of risk.

The Evidence

"…it has been important to work with a firm that recognises how critical it is for us to find people, regardless of the highest technical or personal skills, that will fit with that culture and how we operate. Godliman does just that."

Godliman demonstrated perseverance, thoughtfulness and expertise in conducting our search [for new Head of Sales function]. Though it was a new area for them, we had the utmost faith in their process and their understanding of us as a company – we knew they would deliver. Rupert is somebody we have come to trust, having placed our CIO in 2014, who has gone on to successfully build our investment capability and been a great fit culturally.
