Assessment Centre Training

Increasingly employers are using assessment centres to short-list candidates, as it is seen an effective means of assessing if candidates have the skills and competencies needed for the role. It is growing in popularity because it is seen as fairer and more accurate means of dealing with high volume of applicants. It particular roles within the Pharmaceutical industry, Public Sector, Pilots, Graduate Programmes and roles with high levels of responsibility utilise psychometric testing for short-listing and choosing the best candidate for the job.

While the need for psychometric testing and group assessment activities is understandable it does not make it any less daunting for the candidate. Many people may only attend an Assessment Centre once in their lives and may not know of anyone or few people who have gone through a similar experience. Common questions when called to attend an assessment centre might be;

  • What can I expect to happen at the Assessment Centre?
  • What are the assessors looking for?
  • How can I best prepare for psychometric tests?
  • What can I expect from group exercises and how can I best prepare?
  • How can I reduce the anxiety I am feeling?
