What are clerical aptitude tests?

The aptitude tests available as part of this module are all related in that they check an individual’s aptitude for carrying out organisational practices. However, the individual tests available are highly distinctive from one another. Practices such as data entry, sorting, coding, filing and matching cannot be easily assessed as part of the standard interview process, so ensuring that candidates excel in these areas prior to inviting them to interview is extremely important.

The Clerical skills test module has been designed to test candidates' ability at completing a wide range of tasks relating to clerical and administrative roles. This module assesses basic computer skills and mixes in detail orientation, organisation, and critical thinking, along with verbal and written communication. All these are examples of necessary clerical skills that are required to ensure that an organisation runs smoothly, efficiently and productively.

Why should I use clerical tests?

If you’re hiring for a clerical role, then our specific clerical skill tests are exactly what you need to ensure that your job applicants have what it takes, before getting to the interview stage, and eventually recruitment.

Are these tests used just for recruitment purposes?

Our administrative assessments are quick, efficient and will give you the confidence to make smarter hiring decisions. However, they are not only effective as part of recruitment processes. If you are hoping to re-train your existing employees, having your current team take one or more of these tests will provide them with the relevant administrative and clerical skills they need to improve their day-to-day work.
