    Experiences at the assessment centre

    Only two rounds, first stage application form second stage assessment centre.

    The centre was held at their Wimbledon head office and started with a brief introduction to the group and the 9 members of senior management who were assessing us.

    We then had a 40 minute verbal reasoning test.

    Next was a group task where we were divided into buyers and sellers and had to negotiate a deal across the board room.

    Lunch was an opportunity to question those who are currently on the grad scheme.

    We then had a numerical reasoning test and 1 to 1 competency interview with a series of about 8 questions lasting 40 minutes.

    The last task was a presentation to the group where you were given a topic and 1 minute to prepare and 2 minutes to present.

    Overall it was a great and very friendly experience.
