Numerical Reasoning

These tests are designed to measure your numerical abilities and relate to graphs, percentages and tables whereby you will be asked to analyse data and choose from a set of multiple choice answers. These will be timed so it is important to practice in advance.

Group Exercise

The group exercise demonstrates how you work and perform in a team. The group will be presented with a project that you will need to work together on. 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.

Presentations

You will be expected to give a short presentation on a subject provided. You will be sent the topic ahead of the assessment centre and will be allowed to take prompts in with you. This will be assessing your public speaking and presenting skills. You will also be expected to answer questions following completion of your presentation. Ensure you read widely prior to the assessment centre about the organisation and industry.

Written Exercise
