Overpaid Charity CEOs - top 40 of high paid employees - updated 2022

What does PQE stand for?

15.08.07 What is PQE, and how important is it to law firms? PQE stands for 'Post-Qualified Experience', and is usually given in years or half years for solicitors and also for legal executives as well.

What questions are asked in an Investors in People Assessment?

We also had the Investors in People programme so we were able to look and see what the actual questions would be based on, but there was nowhere to indicate what questions would be asked in the investor in people assessments. So if this helps anyone else, here are the questions we were asked in our investors in people accreditation: The asses
