Group Exercise

This is designed to test your people skills and how you work within a group. You will be required to provide possible solutions to a given problem, usually related to the job role you are applying for. Make sure to find a happy balance between being dominating and passive. The solutions are not the most important part of the exercise, it is more about your performance in the group.



You’ll be asked to give a short presentation on a topic of your choice. It’s important to choose something that you are comfortable talking about and are confident enough to discuss it in the question and answer part of the presentation. You will be assessed on your presentation skills as well as your public speaking and how you work under pressure.
