Co-op boss 'aced psychometric tests'
According to an article in the FT's business blog http://blogs.ft.com/businessblog/2014/01/dangers-in-the-siren-call-of-psychometric-recruitment-tests/ the disgraced former Chairman of the Co-op Bank may have landed his role after he 'aced' a set of psychometric tests.

It seems astonishing that one of the top jobs in the banking industry would be awarded because of blind faith in psychometric tests. Surely there were people involved in the hiring process as well?
