"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, London & SE England
“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 FCA BFP, Director, Ross Brooke Chartered Accountants, Newbury, UK
