Team Development

We use SFIA to manage and develop our skills and competencies

As experts in the use of SFIA, it should be no surprise that we use SFIA internally for our own team. Here are some of the ways we use SFIA. Get in contact to find out more and see how you can leverage SFIA for your team.

Position Descriptions: all our position descriptions describe the skills, skill levels, and generic/ behavioural attributes needed using SFIA.

Team Profiles: every team member has their own SFIA profile with their unique set of skills (beyond those required for their current position) which is periodically updated.

Staff Development: SFIA is an integral part of development planning for both individual team members and across the team.

Recruitment: we use SFIA at several stages in the recruitment process, including for candidate screening and technical interviews.

Accredited Assessment: our team each have their core skills verified using our SFIA Accredited Assessment Scheme to standards set out by the SFIA Foundation. This provides a high level of assurance to us, and to our clients and partners, that our team have the skills needed.
