What is skills testing?

Skills testing provides an objective measure of a candidate’s abilities. Properly validated tests measure two key characteristics - skill level and knowledge. They can also help you predict performance traits such as speed and accuracy.

When used in conjunction with interviewing and background checks, skills testing give you peace of mind that your prospective employee can perform the work you require.

Skills testing is not limited to new employees. It can also be used as a tool to develop your existing employees’ skills or to increase their motivation, productivity and teamwork.

At 11 Recruitment, our tests are developed by industry experts to examine real-life scenarios that occur in the workplace.

We offer tests for roles across all levels of an organisation - from operational and support staff, to professional staff and line managers, all the way up to executives and CEOs.

We have more than 1,000 skills tests available within four primary categories:

If you're interested in skills testing, we would be delighted to tell you more about what we offer so you can decide if we are the right fit for you.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Ashleigh as an employer on multiple occasions. She has always understood the brief perfectly.

She is extremely thorough in her process and is professional yet friendly, warm and approachable. She is in some ways an extension or our team.

I highly recommend Ashleigh, Christian and the 11 Recruitment team."

Detailed results reporting

Our skills test reporting includes a detailed breakdown of the candidate's results, showing:

  • How long they spent on each question
  • Each question's level of difficulty
  • The candidate's proportion of correct answers
  • And a comparison of the candidate's results to the global average

Additionally, if you are conducting your own recruitment drive and would like to assess the behavioural fit of candidates, our behavioural (DISC) profiling service may also be of interest.

DISC is a behavioural assessment tool that provides insight regarding how an individual will react in certain situations.

When incorporating skills testing and DISC profiling into your recruitment drive, you significantly improve your ability to identify and hire a high achiever.
