Because it’s important that we recruit the people who have the relevant skills, knowledge and personal qualities for the role, additional selection tools are sometimes used as well as the panel interview.
- Group exercise
- Critical reasoning tests (verbal and numerical)
- In tray exercise
- Managerial situational judgement
- Written exercise
- Situational interview
- Telephone interview
If you’re required to complete any of the above as part of the recruitment process, you’ll receive information when you receive your invite to interview.
If you’re applying for a senior post or any post with line management responsibility, you can expect to undertake one or more of the above activities, including a traditional panel interview, as part of an assessment centre. In these instances, every effort is made to include the dates for attending an assessment centre as well as the panel interview at the time of advert.
