About Us

Where did it all begin? Well, it started with a desire to simplify. Like so many other great ideas, we had experienced a system, a product or a service that just didn’t quite hit the mark. We had a thought; that there must be a better way of doing this.

We looked at an age-old method, at traditional psychometric testing approaches and decided that it needed a new look. The idea of creating a way for businesses to simplify their candidate selection process by using intelligent and powerful technology, but with zero complexity, was born!

Test Candidates was established with the goal to revolutionise the recruitment process. We wanted to enable better hiring decisions, remodel the way in which candidates are selected and make psychometric assessment an experience recruiters, hiring managers and candidates enjoy.

For us, it is about transparency, operational streamlining and unrivalled support. We’re here to simplify the candidate selection process by creating a platform that does all of the hard work for you.

Our Story

    We experienced first hand the challenges that come with integrating psychometric assessments into a recruitment process - additional admin, laborious tasks, information overload. The solution? An intelligent testing platform that businesses actually enjoy to use.
