The company is looking to start, and complete, the project ASAP.

To apply, please email by 24th July with your CV and explaining why you would be suitable for the project in no more than 200 words. 

The selected candidate will be expected to hand over the report latest by 31st August.






Past Projects

Applications are invited for developing an efficient and effective assessment tool which can measure cognitive diversity and cultural alignment across teams. This will be a short-term consultancy project with the potential for a long-term consultancy relationship.

Applications open until December 3rd 2018

Often there is a perceived conflict between hiring more diversely and preserving "culture fit", which an assessment tool measuring both factors could help alleviate. At the same time, existing psychometric tools are fairly time intensive and limited in scope when applied to diversity and inclusion. 

The aim for the assessment tool would be a test that takes no more than 10-15 minutes for individuals to complete. It would give insightful data on how cognitively diverse and culturally aligned an existing team is. This same test could then be given to any potential new joiners to understand how they contribute to the cognitive diversity and cultural alignment of the team. 



Postdocs with sufficient knowledge of existing assessment tools in this field. The project is aimed at either evolving or adapting the existing tools to help promote diversity and inclusion within the private sector. It is essential that the data from the assessment tool can be proven to be statistically relevant.


To apply, please email by Monday 3rd December with your CV and explaining why you would be suitable for the project in no more than 200 words.
