Ensure your candidates have the right skills and knowledge
Test for basic job-readiness and trainability, computer literacy and software proficiency
Most jobs – especially entry-level roles such as customer service, administration, sales assistants – require basic maths, spelling and reasoning skills. Our assessments help you to identify candidates who possess these skills and are also more likely to learn and apply information on the job. You can also assess candidates’ basic computer skills in areas such as internet searching and email, typing and data entry, and the most commonly used Microsoft Office programs.
People can be tempted to overstate their experience and skill in resumes
Studies show that around 85% of employers have caught candidates exaggerating their level of skill in a resume or interview, because they believe no-one will follow it up. Skills tests give you clear insight into their real-world skills, so you can be confident in their ability to meet the requirements of the role.
Streamline your recruitment process by identifying skilled candidates quickly
Hiring can be time-consuming, and no-one wants to spend their time on candidates who don’t have the right skills for the job or will find it difficult to learn the role requirements. If the gap is discovered after you hire, it’s a difficult choice: continue as you are, dismiss the employee and go back to the market, or spend time and money up-skilling your new employees to the level you require.
Our skills tests assess basic proficiency and help you identify candidates who have the required skill level to perform effectively in jobs that require them to use those skills regularly.
