Assessment Centres

Assessment centres are often the final stage in the graduate recruitment process, and are increasingly used in placement selection too. Usually held at the employer’s premises or a hotel, 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. See the links below for further advice, events and useful resources.
