Assessment Centre Design

Assessment Centre Design

We design and implement assessment centres using a combination of bespoke and off-the-shelf assessment exercises including group exercises, in-trays, presentations, competency-based interviews, situational judgement tests, personality and cognitive ability tests.

Assessment Centre Design

We work closely with you to understand your assessment requirements in terms of the job roles, corporate culture and values, time scales and the number of candidates. We analyse the job description, person specification and competencies to build up a clear understanding of the role. This enables us to recommend the most appropriate exercises to assess the candidates including bespoke exercises when required. Following this, we design the assessment centre exercise matrix demonstrating the mapping to the competencies. We also develop an overall timetable in addition to individual timetables for candidates.

Why Use Assessment Centres?

Assessment centres are used to assess a group of candidates in relation to a particular job role. The assessment centre uses a variety of assessment methods such as group discussions, work sample tests, competency based interviews, situational judgement tests, role plays and ability and personality tests. These assessments can be mapped to your organisation’s competency model so that candidates’ skills are measured against specific job-related competencies. Using a broad combination of exercises will ensure that the best candidates are identified.

The ASSESS Approach

Our assessment centres are designed, developed and implemented using an approach called ‘ASSESS’. This methodology ensures that each project is carefully managed so that candidates are assessed as efficiently as possible without over-engineering the process. We start by developing a thorough understanding of the job role and the skills, abilities and personality characteristics required, using either standard or clients’ own competency frameworks. We use a combination of off-the-shelf and bespoke assessment exercises depending on the areas needing to be assessed. The assessment centre matrix is developed so that each competency is assessed by at least two assessment methods. Timetables are developed to allow sufficient contingency time but without candidates waiting around unnecessarily.
