When it comes to filling a vacancy, placing an advert is the easy part. The hard part is sifting through all the CVs and making sure you select the right candidate. Add to that the frustration of making the wrong decision by employing someone you later find out does not possess the core skills required for the role.  This easily turns the recruitment process into a costly ordeal, having to spend time, effort and precious resources on management or additional training. Skillsarena have the skills tests and tools to help you assess those candidates workplace skills in a seamless and structured way. Your time is valuable.
