Assessment centres

What is an assessment centre?

An assessment centre is a crucial part of the selection process for some jobs that is designed to challenge your skills and enable employers to find out more about your personality. Typically, candidates will undertake presentations, group work exercises and psychometric tests. Other test-like, timed 'in-tray' exercises and interviews may be included as well. Assessment centres are often run over the course of one or sometimes two days and, while traditionally have been conducted in person, are now sometimes done online.
