Assessment centre design and delivery

Robust and engaging assessment centres that identify talent and potential

Our experienced consultants enable organisations to make the right decisions when hiring talent. In addition to assessing leadership capability we also design and deliver assessment centres for professionals in non-leadership roles.

OPP offers a high-quality, complete design and delivery service, working with you to create an assessment centre that meets all your recruitment needs. We engage your key stakeholders to find out about the role, context and culture of the organisation. We then design a credible assessment centre that reflects the challenges and demands of the role so you can see how candidates perform in this environment. We can also use our existing library of exercises and assessments and tailor these to your specific requirements.

Our focus is on providing a fair and robust platform for candidates to demonstrate their capability and potential. We carefully consider the candidate experience at every stage in the process so they have a positive impression of your company throughout, regardless of their selection outcome. 

Using the rich insights from the assessment centre, we can support the development of candidates through providing detailed feedback on strengths and development areas. This enables your recruits to transfer the learning from the assessment centre to their new role, helping them hit the ground running.
