What our clients are saying

Here's what some of Accountests clients tell us

"The report validated his CV and I was pleased that it gave reassurance. His weak points were in Drs & Crs questions which I would expect from someone who has not had a huge exposure to Ltd Company accounts. The BA part was surprisingly good for someone with his background. I recommended to the agency he came through."

Gary Richards, Owner

Tax Assist, Larkfield & Paddock Wood, UK

"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."

David Jones, FCCA

Lewis Brownlee: Chartered Accountants & Tax Advisers, London & SE England, UK

"A really useful resource we use when screening candidates. The tests have questions of varying levels of complexity and the candidate report fully breaks down which answers were answered correctly and incorrectly. This really helps us understand a candidates strengths and weaknesses and identify training requirements."

Charlotte Wass, Director, England, 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.”

Ryan Rambaccussing, Group Financial Controller

FE fundinfo, London, UK

"Overall Accountests has highlighted the past weakness in our interview process very well and whilst I already rated your product very highly beforehand, the disconnect that can occur between how candidates interview and their test score was a real eye opener for me personally. Straight away this has saved us the time of second interview and staff cost through recruiting weaker candidates.'

Dean Blunden, Director

UHY Ross Brooke Chartered Accountants, Newbury, UK

"Really good communication throughout, and provided us with a great test when recruiting for a bookkeeping role."

Amelia Adkins, Assistant Manager

KPMG, Southampton, UK

"I was very impressed with candidate #1's results. Candidate #2 was front runner, however seeing the results candidate #1 has overtaken! Although reading through I know that candidate #2 is also in the average section, being 58th percentile, so not to dismiss her either! I feel we have a hard decision to make. The test has helped though, a lot, and they're very interesting to see the areas in which they scored well/didn't do so well. "

Cheryl Sharp FCCA, CEO

Pink Pig Financials, UK

"We have found that Accountests gives us the opportunity to understand our candidates accounting ability, which no other product has done until now. It also gives us the opportunity to base further questions for the candidate around what we can see their ability is and enable us to make an informed decision."

David Jones, FCCA

Lewis Brownlee: Chartered Accountants & Tax Advisers, London & SE England, UK

"I thought the test was exceptionally good!"

Sarah Palmer, Chief Operations Officer

IAB, London, UK
