How does this benefit me as an employer?

For employers, the accounting and finance tests are a way to assess how candidates digest and apply information, which can help greatly with the hiring process. As future employees will be expected to manage client and business accounts, this is a good way to gain insight into their financial ability and how well-matched they will be for the position.

Filter unsuitable applicants

When hiring for a finance-related position, there can be many potential candidates that appear to be the right fit on paper. With our pre-employment assessment, you can compare their skills and choose who will be the best fit for your company. A pre-employment test can provide a clearer view of a candidate than an interview and will aid you in eliminating those who are not suitable.

Save time and effort

Another reason to use our pre-employment test is that it can greatly reduce the time taken up by the hiring process. By immediately narrowing down your list of potential employees, you can also reduce the cost of the recruitment process.

Make decisions based on quality

A skills test can eliminate any hiring bias. By hiring based on assessment results, you ensure that you have hired the ideal, competent addition to your business. Using these assessments, you can be sure to hire individuals with the ability to calculate accounting figures and manage financial records. In assuring that you have suitable candidates, you reduce future company turnover.

Easy and simple to use

A prospective employee’s responses are automatically marked and a point is awarded for every correctly answered question. Skipped questions or those that are not taken will result in no point being awarded.
