In these testimonials, two ISV.Online clients to share why they decided to add skills testing to their recruitment process, how it has benefited them, and how it fits with their recruitment software CRM. Rebecca Bannerman, Director of Amber Employment Services: Amber Employment Services has a proven track record with clients in the local area in intelligently and thoughtfully matching candidates to permanent, contract and temporary roles at all levels within the commercial office sector. An important part of that recruitment process is to ask candidates to take a skills assessment to help employers choose and hire the best. Skills assessments from ISV.Online help us to verify that candidates possess the skills they mention on their CV and during our registration interview, and the level of skill they are able to offer. When handling high volume applications, using a skills test is a great pre-screening method to help differentiate the top candidates in the early stages of the process, saving time for our clients by ensuring CVs can be shortlisted quickly for their review. Our clients can then focus their interview time on the most suitable candidates for the job, saving time and money, and feeling confident in the candidate’s ability to be able to do the job successfully. Skills testing provides accurate, evidence-based information on a candidate’s skills and knowledge. Hiring companies can be assured that we are fully compliant in our responsibility to make sure we are matching the right person with the right skills for the job. The only way we can guarantee suitability is by skills testing our candidates. Our clients are confident that we are only presenting them with thoroughly assessed and highly relevant applications, which helps to build trust and positively steward our relationship. The candidate’s experience is also significantly improved – in today’s market, candidates are looking for a brief, informative and engaging hiring experience. We can provide a timely and factual explanation of the recruiting decisions being made. This has a positive knock-on effect for our client’s employer brand too – as well as our own, of course.
