The aim of our assessment process is not to catch you out, it’s to assess your suitability for us, and our suitability for you. We try to create an atmosphere where you can relax, be yourself and perform to the best of your ability. We really pride ourselves on our selection process. We like candidates to enjoy themselves, learn more about themselves and learn more about what we do too.
When you’re applying for your Placement role, don’t feel as though you have to get your application in on 1st October. Each application will be judged on its merits, not on how early it arrives. Take the time to do it well. Of course, that doesn’t mean leave it until 31st December, either!
We have a range of shortlisting methods, because this helps us to ensure that we’re fair in our assessments and that we identify the right candidates with the right skills. Rest assured, if you make a strong application, we’ll spot it.
Never done a video interview before? Don’t panic! It’s all in the preparation. Treat it like a face-to-face interview, prepare in exactly the same way and you’ll be fine. We added a few tips for video interviews below.
We think of the Assessment Centre as your chance to learn about us, as well as our chance to learn about you. So introduce yourself to everyone, ask plenty of questions, and make sure we get to know the real you. Above all, enjoy it!
