"I was a candidate in an assessment process designed by Michelle. The experience was positive and rewarding. Psychometric testing and the one to one feedback provided by Michelle was hugely valuable, for both final interview preparation and personal development.

I was aware of Work Pirates through Michelle and James’ podcast - the opportunity to learn more from Michelle about Work Piracy has been key to me reflecting on my own leadership style; giving me the confidence to explore new waters!"

Case Studies

Redesigning the selection process for a Local Government Chief Executive

Due to high turnover in senior leadership and an investigatory report outlining leadership failures, a new approach to selection was required.

Appointed to redesign the leadership behavioural framework to include recommendations from the report.

Designed an assessment centre to include rewriting interview(s), psychometric testing, written exercise and presentation.

Successfully took 5 Chief Executive candidates through the process and appointed the new Chief Executive Officer. Received excellent feedback from the council and candidates.

Business Meeting

Early career selection process for a law firm

Struggle to hire paralegals to work in a legal contact centre environment due to unrealistic candidate expectations and a lack of candidates in the market.

Hired to co-create the organisation's values and role profiles. Designed end-to-end recruitment solution, including attraction, selection and onboarding. Created bespoke selection exercises and trained the hiring managers in the process.

Eliminated agency fees, increased confidence with decision-making, candidate volume and lowered attrition.
