International English Language Tests (IELTS)
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a test that measures the language proficiency of people who want to study or work in environments where English is used as a language of communication. An easy-to-use 9-band scale clearly identifies proficiency level, from non-user (band score 1) through to expert (band score 9).
IELTS is available in two test formats – Academic or General Training – and provides a valid and accurate assessment of the four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking.

Recruitment is not an easy task and without the help and support received from Pearls Recruitment we would have lowered the quality and standards of care delivered. We are grateful to them for enabling us to carry the same good job that was delivered over the years without putting another financial strain on us.
We would highly recommend Pearls Recruitment for being professional in their approach and delivering fast results in recruiting nurses at short notice.
