Ceinwen Walker, Business Director of the Credit Control Division at Hays, comments: "This new service is a welcome addition to the recruitment process and has been extremely well received by clients. It will form part of our already stringent and expert screening process to help us to identify the most suitable candidates for each new role, by providing a clear indication about their level of skills, and will also give the candidate a stronger understanding of their strengths. Clients have commended us for having a tangible measure of the candidate's ability, and strong candidates don't appear to be daunted by it."
