Saville Assessment Aptitude Tests

Saville Assessment was founded by Professor Peter Saville, who also set up SHL. As you might expect therefore, there are similarities between the two test providers. Saville tests are used by financial employers wanting to hire diligent, ambitious and intelligent people - because Saville tests ensure candidates have the right skills, competencies and values for the company they’re being hired for. Here is an overview of all the Saville tests:

Saville test series

The test series varies depending on the role itself and the level of seniority:

Comprehension aptitudes - for operational, customer and administrative staff.

Analysis aptitudes - for managerial, directorial and professional level staff.

Apprentice aptitudes - for graduates, trainees and technicians.

Executive aptitudes - for managerial, directorial and professional level staff.

Technical aptitudes - for engineering and construction roles.

Saville test topics

Each series has an assessment for each of these topics:

  • Numerical
  • Verbal
  • Diagrammatic
  • Abstract
  • Error-checking
  • Mechanical
  • Spatial

Saville test formats

Saville assessments are broken down into two formats:

  1. Single aptitude tests - a longer form version of the aptitude tests which will take over 30 minutes to complete.
  2. Swift aptitude tests - a shorter version which takes less than 30 minutes.

All assessment topics can be taken as swift or single tests. Normally, the swift version is used at the first stage of the recruitment process.

Saville Waver personality questionnaire

The Saville personality questionnaire assesses your strengths and weaknesses, and how well your personality traits align to the company’s values. The test is split into two formats:

1. Wave Professional Style - a 40 minute personality assessment.

2. Wave Focus Style - a 13 minute version of the professional style.

Other Saville tests

Most hiring financial companies will use the numerical, and maybe even verbal, reasoning tests. But the following Saville tests are also in existence:

  • Diagrammatic aptitude
  • Error checking aptitude
  • Spatial aptitude
  • Mechanical aptitude
