Who we are

Alan Redman

Chair & Head of Product Innovation

Alan Redman

Alan works across the areas of assessment and development and is a specialist in the design of online psychometrics. An Associate Fellow of the BPS, Alan is a BPS Occupational Testing verifier, a founder member of the ABP and a qualified hypnotherapist.

Alan spends a significant proportion of his time on one of his bikes. His time in the saddle has given him a thousand-yard-stare, a determined set to his jaw and oily fingernails.

Becca Jermy

Office Manager

During her 3 years with Criterion, Becca has become something of a fountain of knowledge. An expert on Coast, Becca is heavily involved in product development, account management and client projects. Her other roles include course coordination, event organisation, and overseeing the day to day running of Criterion’s busy office.

You’re likely to find Becca in front of the telly with a slice of cake and a G&T in her spare time.

After interning with Criterion many moons ago, Issy is back with the team having graduated. Issy is responsible for facilitating the smooth running of Criterion’s online systems as well as the design of brand new psychometric tools and services, online marketing and account management.

When not in the office, Issy spends her time fastidiously attempting to try every new foodie spot in Brighton and then atoning for said gluttony with the occasional spin class.

Judy Bennet

Director

Judy is a Chartered Psychologist and non-executive Director of Criterion. Judy has worked with a variety of clients from the public and private sector in the areas of assessment and development.

Laura Harrison

She spends her time helping to expand Criterion’s off the shelf portfolio and works closely with clients to develop bespoke solutions. Laura’s a great believer in the value psychometrics can add to identifying the right talent and the importance of developing awareness of what makes them great.

In her spare time, she enjoys annoying others with psych chat in the pub, running and comedy.

In her free time, you can find Jule searching for new culinary pleasures or attempting to master the art of playing the bass guitar!

Laura Cross

Business Psychologist

Initially an Intern at Criterion, Laura’s been a valuable member of the team for more than 2 years now. A keen statistician, you may find Laura busy analysing data, working on product development or looking after Criterion’s clients.

Laura’s currently studying for an MSc in Organisational Psychology to become a fully-fledged Business Psychologist, but don’t worry, she still finds time to have a meal or cocktail out on the weekend!
