Bank Examiner Test

When looking to fill a bank examiner position, it's important to make sure that the candidate has the skills necessary to do the job. A bank examiner skills test can help ensure that the candidate is a good fit for the position.

  • What is a bank examiner skills test?

    Bank examiners play a really important role in society. They ensure banks and other financial companies are operating legally and transparently.

    The morals and ethics of the role are just as important as the ability to deal with the day-to-day practicalities and challenges, which is why the bank examiner skills test is a really important pre-screening device. It allows recruiters and hiring managers to put aspiring bank examiners to the test to see if they have the required skills, abilities and values to be successful in the role.

    Using the test as part of the recruitment process will help save time and money as it allows you to only see the candidates who have proven their level of skill and competence on the test. The test also offers a good way to assess people against the experience and qualifications listed on their CV.

  • What are the benefits of using the bank examiner skills test for pre-screening?

    The bank examiner skills test examines everything from a candidate's mathematical skills and ability to process data, to their understanding of key commercial and banking law rules and regulations. They’ll also be required to showcase their knowledge of business and finance concepts such as balance sheets, loan concepts and income statements.

    It’s a well-rounded test that aims to give recruiters and hiring managers the best possible insight into the pool of prospective bank examiners they have before them.

    The questions on the bank examiner skills test are usually multiple-choice, and candidates will be up against the clock and so required to answer quickly — all of which increases the level of difficulty of the test.

    Best used as a pre-screening device, the test allows recruiters and hiring managers to put people’s skills and qualifications to the test before deciding who to meet with or interview. As well as saving time and money, this process can also help to reduce the level of conscious and unconscious bias in recruitment.

    The bank examiner skills test is primarily used for the role it’s intended for due to the required knowledge of both financial theories, principles, banking, and commercial law.

How our test measures bank examiner skills

Test questions are designed to assess industry-specific technical skills, soft skills, aptitude and suitable personality dimensions. Our data-driven approach provides results that enable you to determine how suited is a candidate for the role.

Depending on the type of question, the format of the test may vary. Multiple-choice questions are used to measure aptitude, technical skills and soft skills, while agreement on a Likert scale assesses suitable personality dimensions. Skills tests ensure that candidates are being evaluated in a precise and impartial manner, their results demonstrating the true knowledge and potential of each test taker.

The characteristics required to become a bank examiner were determined by looking at the skills and abilities listed in the US Department of Labor’s O*NET database, which collects data from professionals in various fields.

O*NET is the largest database of its kind, providing detailed information about occupations and the requirements for each role.

Our team of I/O psychologists and psychometrics worked closely with subject-matter experts to create an extensive question bank that can be used to test multiple candidates. We also conducted rigorous field testing with a representative sample of candidates to ensure that the questions were reliable and valid.

Test scores are averaged together to give an overall score. The average score is compared to other candidates' scores to ensure there is no bias toward certain candidates.

Our bank examiner test is constantly updated and optimized to ensure the best experience and results.

The bank examiner skills test is the best all-around test to use when hiring for this role. But other tests that assess relevant skills include numerical reasoning, finance, accountancy, economics and commercial or banking law.
