Senior Auditor Test

Senior auditor tests are an effective way for recruiters to assess job candidates on the skills needed to be a successful senior auditor.

  • What is a senior auditor test?

    A senior auditor test can be used as a means of determining a candidate's job readiness by assessing them on the necessary skills and competencies required to perform effectively as a senior auditor. The test is typically used in the early stages of the recruitment process to ensure only the most capable candidates are selected.

    The test contains a series of multiple-choice questions specifically designed to assess candidates in key areas required for the role, such as analytical and mathematical ability, attention to detail, and problem solving.

    Candidates who perform highly on the test may have the skill set and expertise to perform their duties to a high standard if they were appointed to the position.

About the Senior Auditor Test

A senior auditor is typically responsible for overseeing the entire auditing process for a company. They manage the audit team to ensure that a company's financial operations and controls comply with standards and regulations. As such a senior auditor must be able to effectively lead a team, allocate responsibilities, and report and present findings.

Picked's senior auditor test helps you identify which candidates have the required skills and competencies to perform these responsibilities effectively, so you can advance only the most qualified candidates through to the next round.

  • Why should you use a senior auditor test for recruiting?

    Senior auditors play an important role within a company, ensuring that the organisation is operating smoothly. Therefore, you'll want to hire the candidate who can perform this role to the highest standard.

    You can, to an extent, rely on resumes and application forms to guide your decision, but these can give limited insight into a candidate's true suitability. A role like a senior auditor is also likely to have many candidates with a seemingly similar level of experience and qualifications, which can make shortlisting decisions challenging.

    This is where Picked's senior auditor test can help. It's designed to assess candidates on the key skills and competencies required for the position, providing you with demonstrable proof of how they are likely to perform as a senior auditor.

    The test is easily administered to a large number of candidates, so you can measure key skills at scale. This allows you to whittle down your talent pool based on comparative data, reducing the administrative burden on your hiring team and ensuring only the most promising candidates are shortlisted.

    Coupled with a well structured and thorough interview process, you can ensure you make the right hiring decision the first time around.

How our test assesses senior auditor skills

Candidates will need to answer a range of questions that measure industry-specific technical skills where applicable (e.g. Microsoft Excel), soft skills (e.g. accountability), aptitude (e.g. numerical reasoning) and relevant personality dimensions (e.g. integrity). The results present a holistic view of how well suited each candidate is for the job at hand, using a data-driven approach.

The format varies by type of question, including multiple-choice for aptitude and technical skills, situational judgement for soft skills and agreement on a Likert scale for the personality dimensions. This approach ensures candidates are being assessed in an accurate and fair manner, and that results reflect the true underlying qualities of each candidate.

The characteristics, abilities and knowledge necessary to be a senior auditor were identified using the US Department of Labor's comprehensive O*NET database. O*NET is the leading source of occupational information that is constantly updated by collecting data from employees in specific job roles.

During the development process, test questions were rigorously analysed to maximise reliability and validity in line with industry best practices. They were created by our team of I/O psychologists and psychometricians – who collaborated with subject-matter-experts – and field-tested with a representative sample of job applicants who have varying experience, just like you might find in a talent pool.

Each test is reviewed by a panel of individuals representing diverse backgrounds to check for any sensitivity, fairness, face validity and accessibility issues. This ensures each candidate has a fair chance of demonstrating their true level of expertise.

Our senior auditor test is monitored to ensure it is up-to-date and optimised for performance.
