The Government Recruitment Service (GRS) made the decision to improve the quality of selection decisions across the Civil Service through more efficient sifting of applications and support the Civil Service’s diversity ambition to become the most inclusive employer in the UK by 2020.

The project had three key goals:

  1. Deliver a new engaging assessment and online platform in a short timescale
  2. Create an inclusive and accessible assessment to all candidates
  3.  Enhance efficiencies and reduce costs

Since the launch of the assessment in February 2017, the test has been completed by over a quarter of a million applicants, helping to fill thousands of jobs from administrative to leadership roles.  To-date it has saved £3.5M in resources needed to manually sift job applications.
