Like any employer, our recruitment decisions are critical and in the past we have been guilty of taking on people who interview well and the CV looks good. This has resulted in a number of inevitably costly mistakes.
We now use as standard the initial assessment tools provided by Accountancy Learning as part of our recruitment process; this provides objective feedback which is at times surprising. For anyone coming for 2nd interview we also use their personality profiling system to match the profile of the individual to the profile of the job. This is simply excellent in assessing suitability and is very quick and easy to organise.
