What is an assessment centre

Assessment Centres are usually the final stage of an employer's recruitment process.  Employers use Assessment Centres to determine if a candidate has the required competencies for the role.  They use a number of exercises designed to assess the full range of skills and personal attributes required. Assessment Centres have been proven to be a much more reliable method than interviews for assessing candidates. They can vary considerably in duration, format and content. Candidates engage in a range of activities which will be assessed by a team of trained observers, often senior managers in the organisation. To try to make the process as objective as possible it is likely that different observers will see you in each of the activities.
