I/O Solutions is a human resources consulting firm and national test publisher located in the near western suburbs of Chicago, IL (Westchester). Our consulting division specializes in the development, validation and implementation of selection systems for clients in the public sector (particularly police, fire and other public safety agencies). We work with the largest public agencies in the U.S. to develop entry-level written examinations, structured interviews, promotional job-knowledge examinations, SJTs, assessment centers, performance evaluation systems and similar tools.
The Sr. Assessment Consultant position is responsible for a variety of duties including serving as a primary project manager for test and assessment development engagements. This is a client-facing role on the consulting team. You will partner with our clients to design, implement and validate assessment and selection systems for both pre-hire and promotion. This position will require immediate immersion into a consulting/project management role and thus previous experience in a client-facing selection and/or assessment role (internal or external) is preferred. Assessment Consultants can expect 20-25% out-of-state travel and perhaps more in the early stages of your employment. The Manager, Consulting Services works in a similar capacity to the Sr. Assessment Consultant. This individual spends approximately 85% of their time as a primary consultant and project lead. The remaining time is spent overseeing a subgroup of the consulting team, including 1-2 consultants, an assessment specialist and an administrative staff member.
· A Sr. Assessment Consultant has a Ph.D. in I/O and 3 years of experience in selection and/or assessment (or an M.S. + 7 years of experience). A consultant has a Ph.D. or A.B.D. status in I/O with practical assessment experiences, coursework, graduate focus and research (or an M.S. + 4 years of experience). Our consulting manager candidate should have either a Ph.D. in I/O with 5+ years of experience, or an M.S. with 10+ years of experience.
· Experience in selection/assessment (managing and implementing selection and assessment projects—working on selection tools, process, design, validation and implementation) is strongly preferred as this is a technical and client-facing position requiring advanced knowledge and/or experience with testing & assessments!
· Ability to travel domestically approximately 20% of the time
Compensation for the position is based on experience, education, knowledge and skill set. We offer an excellent benefit package to include premium health-care, dental, 401k (with employer contribution), bonuses, cell-phone reimbursement, annual company outings, as well as other benefits.
