  • 43. Our experience using Thomas Profiling is that they are vital tools for supporting these processes. The results are consistent… Chris Thorne Commercial Director Recruitment and staff development has always been part art, part science. The instincts of the interviewer or manager will always play a vital part in decision making. Our experience using Thomas Profiling is that they are vital tools for supporting these processes.
