Assessment centre support

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.

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

They test specific work-based activities to see how a candidate handles them e.g. report writing, group exercises and presentations.
