Example Assessment Centre

Assessment centres vary a great deal from firm to firm. A typical assessment centre at an investment bank will be as follows:

Day one

  • 5pm: Arrive at Hotel / Registration
  • 6.30pm: Drinks reception with company representatives
  • 7.30pm: Dinner with company representatives
  • 9.00pm: Company presentation

Day two

The drink and dinner receptions with company representatives will almost certainly be with the assessment centre organisers (who will also be your assessors) and current graduate trainees working at the firm.

Take every opportunity to talk to current trainees as they will not be directly assessing you and can offer great advice about the assessment centre, interviews and the job itself.
