The Situational Strengths Test (SST) enable us to assesses suitability by measuring candidates against a set of realistic scenarios. It works by judging typical reactions, feelings or behaviours against a realistic scenario-based set of questions. Responses will be mapped against the strengths required within North Yorkshire Police and the role of a PCSO, with candidates only advancing based on their fit with these success criteria.
A situational strengths test is a reliable and accurate tool that will help North Yorkshire Police select the right people, with the right strengths, to deliver successful performance. It provides candidates with a realistic job preview, encouraging self-selection, with the look and feel being aligned our culture, values, and brand.
