Many thanks for such a quick reply… Got a response from them saying I had made it through to the next stage but that all of their assessment centres were booked up until March which is most annoying!
From past experience people won’t be able to say what group activities are as they are always changing them because they know of websites such as WikiJobs and so on and so make sure they differ every one!
For my EY Assessment Centre, which I am sure will be similar to all ACs (although saying that, the online tests weren’t similar to EYs at all), had the following…
Based on research topic given before the AC and discussed within a group and then applying the research to a business presentation and during that 45 minute time the presentation was prepared and EY consistently updated the group with new details to see how we reacted to the changes.
To read through a business report and then reduce it to a one page document for the new financial director that was taking over.
Phonecall to a current intern within the EY business discussing a poor piece of work that they had produced and how to go about correcting this.
Tests similar to the online tests just confirming that you are capable of the scores necessary
Which was actually just a conversation and I failed it as I didn’t show I wanted to do the line of work I had applied to enough!
Anyway, I know this was an experience from EY but they are all similar in the fact that they want to see a number of skills that any given person has such as communication skills, problem solving, time management and so on…
Good luck on the 31st!
