The survival of any business requires the availability of and access to financing. Every company wants to maximize its profits and minimize risk, but the availability of financing does not provide a guarantee for these outcomes.
Effective and efficient management of finance requires skilled oversight to ensure that sufficient funds are available to meet current liabilities and for the continued smooth running of business operations. This financial management test will help you find the person who can manage your business’s finances to ensure the short-, medium-, and long-term success of your business.
This hiring test focuses on capital management, investment appraisal, capital structure, and forecasting outcomes. Working-capital management includes understanding the most feasible credit period to be allowed to debtors and the most beneficial time to pay creditors, in addition to various decisions regarding inventory management. Investment appraisal includes allocating funds to invest in the most profitable business opportunities and having funds required for the business at the lowest possible cost.
The person managing your company’s finances should also proactively identify possible financial risks and devise mitigation strategies to prevent the occurrence and impacts of such events.
The financial-management test will help to assess candidates’ financial-management skills. The candidates who perform well on the test are likely to possess excellent financial-management skills in real-world scenarios. The test ensures that successful candidates will be a good addition to your company’s finance team and that they will perform their duties efficiently and effectively right from the start.

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.
The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.
For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.
I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.
For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
