After 18 years as a private business partner at PwC, I co-founded Accountests after becoming frustrated with the lack of certainty when hiring accountants. Does a potential recruit actually possess the necessary technical accounting skills to perform their role? Too many times when working with clients I saw the costly, time consuming and confidence-eroding impact of that gap between anticipated and actual ability of the accountants and bookkeepers they employed. So, I teamed up with Psychometric testing expert Steve Evans and we went about developing a set of tests to verify technical accounting skill levels for a variety of different roles. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only global provider of aptitude tests made by accounting experts, for accountants. Our customers tell us they love our tests and the cost-effective peace of mind the tests provide. If you want to start making informed accounting and bookkeeping hiring decisions, get in touch with us today.
