Numerical Reasoning

Balfour Beatty’s numerical reasoning test comprises of a number of questions, usually 20, to be answered in an allotted time. Generally you are given one minute per question. They relate to graphs, percentages and tables whereby you will be asked to analyse data and chose from a set of multiple choice answers. This is designed to measure your numerical abilities. You will sit these again at the assessment centre.

Verbal Reasoning

This test comprises of a number of questions to be answered in a set time. You will be presented with a series of paragraphs which you will be required to read and then answer questions. Your options in the verbal reasoning test will be True, False or Cannot Tell. This test will be assessing your comprehension skills. You will sit these again at the assessment centre.

Diagrammatic / Logical Reasoning

This test comprises of questions relating to sequences of shapes and patterns. In each question there will be a missing step and you will be provided with a number of answers to choose from. These are designed to test your logical reasoning as well analytical and problem-solving skills.

Personality Test

You will be asked to sit a personality test which will include a number of words and statements which you will have to rate in terms of how important you feel each are. This test is designed to see what type of person you are and how you will fit into the organisation.

Group Exercise

The group exercise demonstrates how you work and perform in a team. The group will be presented with information, including a number of issues and you will need to produce solutions. Ensure to find a balance between speaking up and making your point but without dominating the group. You must show the assessor that you can work well in any situation, especially within a team as that is something that will be expected of you at the company.

Written Exercise

You’ll be given a written exercise, similar to the group exercise, where you will be given materials to read briefly prior to writing up a report. This will be to assess your written communication skills. You’ll be expected to analyse the data and information given and then produce a written analysis and present your findings. There will then be a time for questions from the assessor so you will also be assessed on your presentation skills.

Presentation

Following the written exercise you will be expected to present your findings to the assessors. You will then be required to answer questions in order to demonstrate both your knowledge of the company and how you would work under pressure. You will also be assessed on your presenting skills as well as your language and overall delivery.
