Scribes are frequently engaged by government clients in need of an independent record of interview processes and the deliberations of the selection process. The professional scribe takes detailed notes during interview and ensures the final selection report is completed to justify the selection decision. This service frees up the valuable time of members of the selection panel and ensures that document requirements are met without compromising timeframes.
Why book a scribe?
Our experienced scribes can do as much or as little as you need with your upcoming selection or recruitment process – from planning & process design to post-selection feedback. They will streamline the process and assist the time-poor selection panel.
When you book a Merit Solutions consultant, you are not booking a transcriber. We don’t do transcripts, we write reports. You are getting the knowledge of ex-public sector employees, most of whom have held senior level government positions, and have years of experience being on government recruitment panels.
A selection consultant will, at minimum, take detailed interview notes and provide a comprehensive selection support; however many of our clients take advantage of our consultants’ additional expertise, and are often called upon to assist with other aspects of the selection process.
