Cappfinity partners with Linklaters to streamline recruitment

Strengths-based assessment firm Cappfinity has partnered with law firm Linklaters to launch a customised assessment platform based on Cappfinity’s platform in a bid to streamline their application process.

In a statement released yesterday, Linklaters revealed it hoped to improve talent acquisition by unlocking behavioural insight and building a more holistic picture of candidates, with bias-free algorithmic assessments enabling the firm to look past grades, subjects and institutions, and recruit for ability, fit and potential – supporting strategic diversity and inclusion goals.

The company adds its aim is to deliver an immersive, engaging experience; candidates are provided with a preview of what it would be like to work for the employer through real-world scenarios.

Speaking about the benefits of the change, Alison Wilson, Linklaters graduate recruitment partner, said: “Following on from the recent launch of our virtual internship and Vantage programme, our new approach to assessment is another example of how we are transforming the way we recruit. By assessing candidates in realistic scenarios, we believe we’ll gain a better understanding of the positive impact they could have as a trainee and how they could contribute to the success of Linklaters, now and in the future.”
