James Sullivan - Client Services Manager


Our client base includes both Irish and Global Organisations across a range of industry sectors from financial and professional services to pharmaceuticals and electronics, and this client base spans public service, semi-state bodies, and private companies.

We partner with our clients to implement innovative solutions and we ensure that all our clients get the most appropriate assessments for their requirements. Over the years we have supported numerous clients throughout their recruitment process, in extremely competitive candidate markets where staff retention is a top priority. We use leading technology platforms that enable us to operate remotely.

Our services include Psychometric Assessments, Outplacement Support, Interviewer /Interviewee Training and Employability & Career Services, and we have included more detail on each below.

Psychometric Assessments:

We provide a range of Psychometric Assessments, from Ability assessments to Skills tests, and Personality profiling. We support clients with Psychometrics for Recruitment and Selection, Internal Promotion, and Personal, Team and Leadership Development. Our approach with each client is to understand the context of the job and what personality dimensions and competencies are required for specific roles. This is to ensure that all of our clients get the most appropriate assessments for their requirements. We provide additional support for clients through the interpretation and practical application of reports, should it be required, to help clients get the most out of the information from the candidate’s assessment results.


We support organisations and individuals through planned and unplanned redundancies with an aim to ensure the process remains as positive as possible, through a time which is frequently tough for individuals and organisations.

We offer solutions on an individual or group basis, depending on client requirements. Our Outplacement Support & Outplacement Programmes cover areas such as the Impact of Redundancy, Self-Appraisal & Self-Marketing, Importance of Networking, CV & Interview Preparation, and Sourcing Opportunities.

Interview Training:

We conduct interview training for Hiring Managers in client companies, who are inexperienced in conducting candidate interviews. The aim of this training is to ensure that participants in the training are comfortable conducting interviews, which will ensure a good candidate experience. This training also aims to increase the chances of our client businesses hiring the most appropriate candidates for their role, based on areas such as cultural fit or experience.

We also conduct interview training for interviewees who are getting ready to go through the interview process. This can be on an individual basis or if a company wants to arrange training for a group of candidates in advance of going through the interview process for open roles in their business.

Employability & Career Services:

We have a partnership with SETU (South-East Technological University) developed to benefit the University and students. We provide a range of career support services, supporting students as they move into the workplace. Our support services include Workshops, Career Guidance, CV & Interview Preparation, Skills Development, Job Search, Career Fairs, Employer Visits & Employer Engagement.

Private Client in Medical Devices

"I think the process in relation to organising the test by CPL was very professional. There was a high level of integrity brought to the test organisation and communication with me, with simple steps to take to allow the test to be taken. On the test itself, I thought it was excellent with very appropriate questions for the candidate, which should in turn help to determine if the applicant is somewhat suitable for the role. If the candidate / test taker has carried out practice sessions and preparation this should be evident in the result. The questions were interesting and well balanced and the time allowed was perfect. From our side I think it is a very good step in the hiring process"
