Here's what some of Accountests clients tell us

"Accountests fills the critical gap of testing candidates’ knowledge rather than relying on their interview performance. Nobody should hire an accounting staff member without giving them one of these tests first."

Monash University, Melbourne, Australia

Amanda Michael, Faculty Finance

"I recently used Accountests as we were looking for a way to assess technical management accountant ability to supplement our interviews of shortlisted candidates. It helped inform our decision and would definitely use it again."

Financial Express, London UK

"The tests were extremely valuable in providing an independent gauge of the skill level of the candidates, which played a key part in making a decision on who was right for the role.”

"Accountests has completely changed our interview process.  No longer do we waste time with the ‘talkers’ who have the gift of being amazing at interviews but who turn out to be not so great at their job!  I can honestly say that we will never give up using Accountests."
