Assessment centres

Assessment centres are an increasingly popular tool in the recruitment process of graduate employers. To be invited to an assessment centre means the employer already believes you have the potential to fulfil the role.

Assessment centres offer recruiters the opportunity to observe the way you operate and interact with others, and provide more information about your skills and abilities than an interview alone. They also test specific work-based activities to see how a candidate handles them, i.e. report writing, group exercises, presentations.

Further assessment centre support

If you have an assessment centre coming up, book an appointment to see an adviser to discuss what you will face.

Come along to our Apply Yourself workshops on 'How to succeed at assessment centres', where you will have the opportunity to participate in a typical group exercise. The session is designed to give you the confidence and tools to succeed at assessment centres. Check out the Apply Yourself events page for upcoming workshops.

Our Apply Yourself Canvas course: Assessment Centres, also gives you a detailed overview of what to expect at assessment centres and the best way to approach them to maximise success.
