“Excellent skills assessment ”

Written on: 05/10/2020 by LorimerPM (1 review written)

I thoroughly recommend the Acuity method as a tool to assess the strengths and weaknesses of any finance professional. Following the assessment, the person I dealt with talked me through the areas that I did well on and those areas that were not so good and made recommendations on the types of role I would be best suited for. It was spot on. The assessment also gave me the opportunity to identify my weaknesses and take steps to address these and fill in my skills gaps… Read Full Review

“Very Professional”

Written on: 01/10/2020

Very thorough and professional onboarding process, being able to sit the tests was hugely beneficial, and on reviewing the results it was immediately apparent that some of key strengths were illustrated based on my answers and performance on the test. This is going to be extremely useful in Acuity selling my skills and experience and generating introductions moving forward. I strongly recommend others to consider working with Acuity - well worth the time investment… Read Full Review

“Interesting approach to recruitment”

Written on: 23/09/2020 by ALivingston (1 review written)

Sad accountant that I am, I rather enjoyed sitting the test (my first for many years - despite all the warnings my exam technique was certainly rusty). Once complete it meant that clients knew that I had the skills I claimed and that we could more rapidly move on to discussions of where I could add real value for them. Acuity has led to an interesting variety of introductions… Read Full Review

“Testing weeds out chaff from wheat”

Written on: 21/09/2020 by Goodman246 (1 review written)

I have been recruited through Acuity and have been through their process on more than one occasion. I believe that their methods weeds out the chaff from the wheat very effectively and ensures that anyone going through to meet a client is of a standard that means they can do the job. The testing that you get put through is controlled, time-pressured, multi-level and rigourous. You will not pass or get through unless you understand how businesses work, double entry book-keeping, Excel and how… Read Full Review

“I have worked with Acuity for many years and have...”

Written on: 21/09/2020 by ascoulson (1 review written)

I have worked with Acuity for many years and have found them to be very effective in their approach to delivering projects. They see themselves as a solutions provider rather than merely a recruitment agency. Part of their unique process is an assessment to ensure that candidates are capable of performing the roles being put forward for prior to the possibility of being short listed for a project. Projects I have worked on have proved rewarding and enjoyable and I attribute that in part to… Read Full Review

“Highly recommended - found my perfect match”

Written on: 10/09/2020 by JulieBoddy (1 review written)

I approached Acuity shortly after moving to London where I had taken a temporary position through an agency to facilitate the move. As the London market is very competitive, and I was looking for a part-time role with some flexibility to accommodate my external commitments, I was struggling to find a suitable position taking the usual, Recruitment Agency route, where I would feel like part of the team rather than “the temp”. The Acuity MethodTM enabled me to differentiate myself in the… Read Full Review

“Research agency mascuarading as a recruitment agency”

Written on: 14/03/2015 by KyraAnderson14 (1 review written)

I was called by this company after I applied for a role as a Finance Director on Linkedin. They refused to give the company and supplied very little detail. They asked me to complete a 2 hour assessment (very odd for such a senior role) which entailed supplying advice on very specific circumstances/problems this company found it in. After 2 weeks of hearing nothing, I sent Acuity an e-mail explaining that I no longer wanted to be considered. Funnily enough, I was then sent an e-mail minutes… Read Full Review

Benmekie's Comment

Written on: 22/09/2020

Dear Krya

We categorically assure you we are not a research agency masquerading as a recruitment agency. Under no circumstances would we take live company data and ask candidates for their input. We have never done that and never will.

In fact the role of Finance Director for this client was filled successfully and they continue to use Acuity's services for both recruitment and assessment purposes to this day.

Please do feel free to get in touch with a Director of the company for further clarification.

Kind regards,

Acuity Associates
