Hi, my name is Aimee Bateman, and I’m the founder and CEO of Careercake.

In this course, we’re going to talk about how you’re going to succeed at that assessment centre.

Course outcomes:

  • Better understand what to expect on the day and what the assessors are looking for
  • Become more confident in your approach to the assessment day
  • Increase your awareness of typical activities and learn how to perform to the best of your ability
  • Practise copying strategies to manage nerves and build confidence

I’ve spent the last 15 years working in recruitment, designing and delivering assessment centres, for small businesses, as well as global brands. I understand exactly what it takes to succeed. A lot of people think assessment centres are just for graduate roles, but that’s not the case. I’ve done just as many assessment centres for senior roles, as I have for graduate-entry positions.

With the rise of apprenticeships, they are becoming more and more common in the recruitment process. They’re quite full on, there’s quite a lot you need to cover, but I want you to have fun with. They’re a great opportunity to build relationships with employers and show them how good you are. There’s a lot to digest, prepare and do - we’re going to cover it all. Lots of tangible action points for you to take away. So let’s look at exactly what we’re going to cover.

We’re also going to hear from some Careercake viewers who have very kindly shared their assessment centre journeys. Everyone single one of them went to an assessment centre, didn’t get through, but learnt loads, went back, totally nailed it, and got offered their dream job. They’re going to share their successes, and things they wish they hadn’t done, with you.

So, let’s get started.

    This course is great for helping people to prepare for assessment centres. There are so many useful tips for dealing with this difficult social situation. Any one of these tips could make all the difference between performing well and underperforming. Thank you Aimee!

    This course must have been thoroughly thought through judging by the minefield of information that it contains. Newcomers to 'Assessment Centers' would be well advised to not feel overwhelmed if they need to go over the content of this footage several times. So much more information is able to be absorbed on a second viewing.

    Thank you for another wonderful course. Full of fantastic information, and delivered superbly. The passion came through, and made me look forward to an Assessment Centre, rather than dreading it! Thanks again, and keep up the good work.

    Another excellent course with a perfectly timed release. Anyone attending an Assessment Centre, particularly soon-to-be graduates, should take the time to sit down and take on board this advice. It's engaging, practical and memorable!
