Assessment centre

The assessment centre is now done completely online, but you will still get the chance to meet with the hiring team and recent graduates. There are three tasks involved:

Individual written task

The written task will be based on the type of role that you’re applying for. Often you will be given a case study with a problem relevant to the job you will be doing, and you will have to prepare a response.

Depending on your area of expertise, there may be more technical elements to the task, so make sure you are confident in your core skills and recent developments in the field.

Group exercise

This may be similar to the individual task, in that you will be given a case study or some research to discuss and present as a group. As well as being assessed on how well you deal with the brief of the task, this is primarily an opportunity for the hiring managers to observe how you work in a group setting.

Try to act as naturally as possible as they want to see your personality. If you find the prospect daunting, have a look at some advice for group exercises that can help you.


Lastly, there is a competency-based interview, which is usually with two or more staff relevant to the position you have applied for.

A competency-based interview means that the questions are more situational or behavioural-centred; common questions include:

  • Why did you apply to Arup?
  • Tell me about a time you found an innovative solution.
  • How have your experiences prepared you for this role?
  • Tell me about a time you were critiqued and how you reacted.

To do well in this interview, you need to make sure that you know your CV well and have clear examples of your strengths, weaknesses, and any technical skills expected of you.

It is also a good idea to research Arup and its recent business news, so you can discuss specific details about what interests you about the profession and the company. Many people find interviews intimidating, but there are plenty of helpful interview tips that can help you make a lasting impression.
