what we do

As a hiring manager, engaging with an assessment centre offers you an alternative method of recruiting to the traditional interview structure. Randstad’s Assessment Centres allow you to replicate key business senarios in a simulated environment, and assess how potential talent react in each situation.

The outcome of this testing allows us to provide you with a clear and focused overview of an individual's current ability, future potential and how candidates are likely to fit in with your future business objectives. In doing so, this gives your business the best possible chance of attracting and retaining talented individuals who will be instrumental in your ongoing business success.

We achieve this by applying an assessment centre methodology against eight critical success factors that is then tailored specifically for your business. Our dedicated assessment centre specialists work with your business to define competencies and behaviours specific to your business, with the ultimate goal of designing a tailored environment with everyday tasks specific to your business in which to assess your potential candidates in. 

We offer three levels of assessment centre services, all of which can be customised to suit your individual business requirements. They are:

option 1 - full service assessment

This is our 'bells and whistles' option - offering a full service assessment which incorporates job analysis, competency matrix creation, design of four to five assessment exercises, psychometric assessment, tailored reference checking, integration of all assessment results and full candidate reporting. We recommend this recruitment approach for senior management and team leaders.

option 2 - high volume recruitment

This second option provides a cost effective, efficient approach to volume recruitment and incorporates job analysis, competency matrix creation, design of two to three assessment exercises, reference checking and integration of all assessment results. Psychometric assessment and candidate reporting is also available, however is not mandatory in this option.

option 3 - standardised assessment

Our "On the Run" assessment centre product provides a quick and easy approach to volume recruitment. In this third option we have created a set of standardised assessment centres to assist with the placement of commonly recruited roles. This is a cost effective option when you are working within tight timeframes and budget requirements.

No matter how big or small your assessment centre recruitment requirements, we adapt to suit your needs. From assessing small numbers of candidates for senior management positions, to volume assessment for major recruitment drives or creating bespoke graduate campaigns - Randstad's Assessment Centres can help you every step of the way.
