Prepare yourself for leading employers

Virtual assessment centre

If a candidate is successful at the online ability tests, they will be invited to attend the virtual assessment centre. The aim of the assessment day is to assess candidates against the skills that BNP Paribas looks for in applicants.

The assessment centre is a mix of some maths-based ability tests, a group exercise, and a presentation exercise.

The group exercise assesses how well a candidate works as part of a team. You will be presented with information and then asked to discuss this (as a group) to reach a conclusion.

It is important that you read and understand the information given as part of the exercise. Be willing to share and contribute your views and ideas to the discussion.

The presentation exercise requires candidates to prepare a short presentation on a brief, and then to answer questions afterward.

Strong communication skills and respect for others are important skills to demonstrate at the assessment centre.

Business interview

Candidates that are successful at the virtual assessment centre will be invited to stay on for the afternoon session: the business interview.

This is the final stage of the process and is a mix of competency-based and strengths-based interviews. The interview is with a member of the Early Careers team, as well as a representative from the business.
