Assessment Centre FAQs

If you are successful at the application, online SJT and video interview stage then you will be invited to attend an assessment centre from a very limited number of dates. You will be expected to attend one of the assessment centres that you are offered. Due to the volume of applications that we receive, we will not be able to offer alternative dates or keep any applications on hold. You will need to pick from one of the dates available otherwise your application will be withdrawn.
