Scribing is frequently requested by government clients looking for an independent record of interview processes and the deliberations of the selection panel.  The professional scribe will usually take detailed notes during the selection interview and prepare the final selection report.  This valuable service frees up members of the selection panel to get on with their busy jobs and ensures that documentation requirements are met without compromising timeframes.

Our Services Include:

  • Scribing for interviews, shortlisting meetings and panel deliberations
  • Providing immediate professional advice where difficult issues arise
  • Development of selection tools including effective interview questions and benchmarks or work tests
  • Obtaining and reporting referee comments
  • Promptly completing all selection documentation to the highest standards

Our Approach

For our government clients, Merit Solutions has extensive experience of over 18 years and more than 5000 selection panels so we understand public sector recruitment.  We are experienced in the production of professional selection reports including individual and comparative assessments as required for individual agency templates. These are finalised in consultation with the chair of the selection panel. We pride ourselves on the fact that our reports are routinely adopted by the selection panel without change.

Our professional scribes are often called upon to assist with other aspects of the selection process because of their extensive experience.  With professional HR backgrounds, they can further add value and relieve the workload of the selection panel by undertaking the shortlisting of candidates, participating as a panel member or providing feedback to candidates on behalf of the panel.

Our scribing and documentation services are also frequently used during the evaluation of tenders and funding proposals or to prepare professional minutes of meetings or stakeholder consultation.
