Based on the strength of your online application and your answers to the online test, you may be invited to attend an assessment.
Our assessment centres run from November to April, and you will have a choice of dates to attend.
At the assessment centre we will ask you to demonstrate your experience and show us that you have the attributes we are looking for. You will take part in a number of activities linked to the day-to-day work of a mental health social worker. The activities include interviews, group exercises, and a role play. You will be assessed by experienced professionals and mental health service users and carers, according to our attributes.
The assessment centre is also an opportunity for you to find out more about what the role will involve.
We will ask you to bring some documents to the assessment, so that we can verify your right to work in the UK and witness the documents necessary for your application for a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate.
The assessment is the final stage of the selection process. You will hear within one week whether you have been successful.
