Assessment Centres

An assessment centre isn’t a location….it’s a method for assessing aptitude and performance, focusing on a set of varied exercises designed to simulate different aspects of the working environment. Assessment centres are often used when you need to recruit in high volumes (for example a graduate trainee programme) or if you are looking for candidates with very specific skills.

Square Peg HR will always design a bespoke assessment centre process following a specific needs analysis with our client – the assessment process can be aligned to the organisation’s values and competency frameworks, and we can advise on the range and type of exercise to use. An assessment centre usually lasts for a half or full day, depending on the job role and the number of candidates.
