- Demonstrate your talents and abilities
- To show us your understanding of our Company

The number of people taking part in an assessment centre will vary, depending on the number of candidates who have made it through to this stage.
The schedule for the day will usually involve:
- Delivery of a short presentation
- A written exercise (e.g. attention to detail or numeracy assessment)
- A tour of the facility where you get to meet other members of the team
- A fun group ‘team building’ exercise
We work hard to make sure the Assessment Centre experience is enjoyable and not nerve-wracking for our candidates. We have had some great feedback from candidates who have been through the process, as it gives you the chance to really find out more about us too!
Your personality and ‘team fit’ is as important to us as your technical performance in our assessments, so relax, be yourself and enjoy the day!
