    Assessment Centre Competition

    Suited for years 3, 4 and master students but anyone can enter.
    One of the main stumbling points students face during the interview process for jobs is the assessment centre. So much goes on that make it difficult to get through. Thus, the aim of this category is to give students a ‘mock assessment centre’ where they can get a feel for what companies do at this stage of the process.

    You will be put into groups of 5 and given the choice of two tasks to complete: general mock assessment centre, suitable for everyone, and an actuarial mock assessment centre, aimed at students looking to apply to actuarial firms. This event will most likely take around 2 hours of your time in total and will also be judged at various stages. Feedback provided based on student performance.
