PwC endeavour to identify and select the best candidate for each role in our firm. To this end, we use various means to assess candidates during the recruitment process. Often assessment tools are used in addition to reviewing candidates' CVs/Application forms and interviewing them.
Tools, such as ability tests, offer us objective information about candidates' abilities. Each candidate who applies for a role will offer a unique set of skills, experience and characteristics. If we identify key abilities required for a role we can introduce different tools into the process to measure these abilities. All candidates for the role can then be compared in terms of the level of skill they demonstrate in the assessment.
