Assesment and Development Centeres

Nicholson International is experienced in developing Assessment and Development Centres to guide clients in effectively evaluating employees´ and/or candidates´ managerial and/or leadership abilities. We believe this approach provide a realistic idea of how candidates for particular roles would behave in a range of work situations.


We can identify the technical and/or personal qualifications required for certain roles and determine individuals’ suitability. We can also help to build detailed career development plans for individuals based on objective observation and evaluation. We tailor our approach to each client, because we know that competencies differ between organisations.


An Assessment Centre consists of a standardized evaluation of behaviour based on multiple evaluations including: job-related simulations, interviews, and/or psychological tests. Job Simulations are used to evaluate candidates on behaviours relevant to the most critical aspects (or competencies) of the job. It usually last from half-a-day to two full days depending on the level of position. 


Assessment and development tools include;


  • Competency-based interviews
  • Leaderless group discussions
  • In-tray/E-tray exercises
  • Role-play sessions
  • Business case studies
  • Technical interview
  • Panel Interview
  • Psychometric/Personality Tests
  • Business Presentations
  • Written Exercise
