Thresher goes online to recruit branch managers

Off licence chain Thresher Group has introduced an online application and selection process to overhaul its branch manager recruitment.

Under the initiative, candidates for branch manager positions at Wine Rack, Thresher and The Local apply online through a careers website.

They take an online numerical reasoning test and a customised online personality questionnaire, both provided by assessment specialist PSL.

“We used to recruit branch managers using a telephone hotline and an audition day but this was very labour-intensive and failed to produce the best suited candidates to Thresher Group,” said Claire Giannissi, recruitment manager at Thresher.

“Now, with online testing, we only invite candidates to an assessment centre who are likely to be successful in the role.”
