Sofie Seland Amundsen: Kvant’s new Head of Assessment

We are happy to announce that Sofie Seland Amundsen is the newest addition to our team, joining as Kvant’s new Head of Assessment. Kvant always focuses on providing clients with sound methodology and tools that are easy to use. With experience from the market leading test provider Aon, Sofie will help us further improve our assessment methodology in order to help our clients make the best decisions. She holds significant experience within selection, mapping and development of recruitment processes from her previous role as a Consultant. Additionally, Sofie holds an MSc in Leadership and Organisational Psychology from BI Norwegian Business School, after obtaining a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

Moving forward, Sofie will further develop her competence and serve as a specialist within assessment. Having worked with recruitment processes, assessment centers, leadership development programmes and validation studies, Sofie will play a key role in assisting Kvant’s clients with recruitment processes tailored to their exact wishes. Whereas others in Kvant hold significant experience from consulting and uncovering the needs of our clients, Sofie is an expert when it comes to validating whether candidates truly are the right match for the role.

- Sofie's background in organizational psychology, combined with her hands-on experience from working with leading assessment methodologies, make an ideal set of skills that further strengthens and develops Kvant as a leader in the field of candidate assessment. We are very much looking forward to getting her on board and seeing her start shaping Kvant further, says Øivind Fossum Persen, COO of Kvant.

Sofie aims to secure Kvant’s internal expertise regarding the use of assessment tools. By doing so, we will be able to attend to our clients and candidates in the best way possible. Kvant’s priority lies with catering to our clients while also making sure that every candidate experiences a top notch recruitment process, which will be secured through appropriate assessment methods. As Sofie states, she looks forward to further implementing these tools in Kvant’s business model while also learning more about the core of each and every type of role we recruit. When it comes to assessment, one size does not fit all.

“I enjoy working in the intersection between theory and practice. Kvant provides an opportunity to work with a concept that creates value for clients by combining evidence based recruitment methods with practical field expertise. I very much look forward to working alongside the talented and engaging Kvant team, and continuing our development while also setting the standard for the industry.”
