Assessment Centres

Observe Candidates BEFORE They’re Hired

A thorough and robust recruitment process will reduce both attrition and cost for your business; giving you competitive advantage. While holding traditional one on one interviews are the most popular method of making hiring decisions, they do have limitations in terms of assessing candidates. Employment Office Assessment Centre methodology allows you to:

  • Ask your candidates to SHOW you why they will be successful in the role, rather than just telling you
  • Observe candidate behaviour and cultural fit in a group based setting
  • Increase candidate engagement in your business and increase their understanding of the role itself

What Are Employment Office Assessment Centres?

Employment Office Assessment Centres are an objective forum for hiring managers to observe and compare shortlisted candidates in a situational environment. Assessment Centres are customised for each client to assess the key skills or behavioural competencies required for the role across a series of exercises and job simulations.

Employment Office’s Recruitment Specialists will design and facilitate the day, allowing hiring managers to observe candidates closely so that they can make informed hiring decisions.


An example of our tailored service:

Our Employment Office Recruitment team designed and facilitated an assessment centre for Multi-Skilled Operators, that included a group activity that assessed team work skills and safety focus, a practical assessment on a Loader and an Excavator and another activity that assessed logic, ability to plan and communication skills.

This process was supported by thorough telephone interviews prior to the day to qualify and prepare the candidates and employment reference checks after the day to verify the observations we made on the day.

When you engage our team to facilitate an Assessment Centre on behalf of your organisation you will receive the following:

  • Thorough job analysis and understanding of your needs.
  • Competency analysis and criteria composition.
  • Customised selection of exercises and assessments to demonstrate observable behaviours.
  • Facilitators to ensure seamless running of the day and high level candidate experience.
  • Briefing for hiring managers to ensure they understand the most effective assessment of candidates.

We will tailor the Assessment Centre as needed to reflect the hiring needs of your organisation.

“We absolutely love the recorded video interviews that Employment Office has conducted for us. We now know exactly what to expect of the candidates we have invited forward for a face to face interview after seeing them in this capacity. It is great to feel confident going into our interviews that these candidates are truly the right fit, will most likely result in a hire and will in no way be a waste of our time.”
