Assessment Centre journey:

  • Individual interview – here we’ll go through a series of questions with you to get to know your strengths in relation to our Mace behaviours, competencies and values.
  • Group exercise – as a team, you’ll take part in an interactive fictional activity where we’ll be looking at how you collaborate with and influence others.
