Saville Aptitude Assessments test

The optimal tool for screening out and selecting in

The Saville Assessment aptitude assessments portfolio can be used to screen out large numbers of applicants for a role, and then select in the cream of the crop.

Saville aptitude assessments: online ability assessments

The Saville Assessment series of cognitive ability assessments helps recruiters be confident of adopting an effective, fair and ethical approach to ability testing. The assessments measure candidates' aptitude in a variety of workplace contexts, saving you time and money during the selection process by adopting a two-tier structure for first screening out large numbers of applicants, and second selecting in the best of the smaller pool you have identified.
