Based on the strength of your application and your answers to the situational judgment test, you may be invited to attend an assessment centre. We are currently running these assessments remotely in response to the coronavirus situation, and – if you reach this stage of the process – our recruitment team will provide more information on how you can take part.
Our assessment centres run from November to June, and you will be given a choice of dates.
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, all run remotely, 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.
You will need to present one form of photo ID, such as your passport or driver’s license. Our Recruitment Team will provide more information on this requirement ahead of your assessment date.
The assessment is the final stage of the selection process. You will hear within one week whether you have been successful.
