Assessment Centres

Assessment centres are often the final stage in the graduate recruitment process, and are increasingly used in placement selection too. Held at the employer’s premises, a hotel, or online, they involve a variety of individual and group exercises designed to give you the opportunity to demonstrate specific skills and qualities against a predetermined set of criteria.

For further information and advice, head over to our Careers Network Learn Module CA007, to see examples, checklists and top tips, and to access our interactive online course Excel in Employer Selection Processes.

Mock Assessment Centres
