About JobTestPrep’s Oxfam CEB SHL Packs

There is no need to feel intimidated by the Oxfam recruitment process with JobTestPrep on your side. We offer a wide range of practice materials to help you through every step of the Oxfam hiring process.


Oxfam CEB SHL Numerical Reasoning-Style Online Tests

There are several different types and styles of SHL CEB numerical reasoning tests. They range from the high level graduate/management tests to operational level. Our PrepPacks™ have been created to cover a wide spectrum of questions and test types in order to give you the complete preparation for your upcoming test.


Oxfam CEB SHL Verbal Reasoning-Style Online Tests

For the CEB SHL verbal test, you will read short passages of text and answer questions relating to each passage. Each question will require you to quickly evaluate whether a statement is true, false, or indeterminable based on the text.


Oxfam CEB SHL Inductive Reasoning Logical-Style Online Tests

This is the most common type of logical reasoning test SHL offers, often delivered to candidates applying for graduate, managerial, and executive roles. On this test, you are presented with a series of five objects. Your task is to select the object that would come next in the series from the five available options (just like in the first example above). The test consists of 24 questions to be solved in 25 minutes. It is administered online at the beginning of the recruitment process, along with other CEB SHL-style Verify tests. If you pass the test, you are often invited to an assessment centre, where you are required to sit an additional, shorter verification test. This test is supervised and is designed to substantiate the integrity of your former results. It is, thus, important that you prepare for both tests.


Oxfam CEB SHL OPQ32-Style Online Assessments

The Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ) assessment was designed to give organizations an understanding of how aspects of an individual's behavioral style will affect his or her performance at work.


 

Oxfam Situational Judgement Tests

The Oxfam Situational Judgement Test or SJT is used as a means to gauge your ability to approach real-life work conflicts and scenarios accordingly. You will be tasked with choosing the most and least effective responses, or to rank them in order based on their effectiveness. The Oxfam SJT will assess a number of invaluable workplace skills. This test is usually comprised of 100 or more questions which measure 32 specific traits.


Oxfam Microsoft Excel Assessment Tests

Oxfam uses Microsoft Office assessments to test your proficiency in using Microsoft Office at various levels of difficulty. You will be tested in a variety of areas including basic formatting, creating tables, saving and printing properties.

The advanced level test requires you to master the different features of the software. Most of the questions will deal with formulas, macro creation, advanced formatting and document properties.

Oxfam Interview Procedure

As part of Oxfam’s hiring process you will be invited to one or more interviews. It is common to have an initial phone interview which helps the recruiter or HR manager understand your experience. Therefore, this is also great chance for you to stress your relevance to the position whilst elaborating on your CV. You should be prepared to participate in further phone, video, and face-to-face interviews. As interviews are your chance to impress your recruiter preparation can make a real difference. Preparing in advance also helps you to enter the interview with confidence as you are ready to give clear answers and shows your recruiter that you are a serious applicant. JobTestPrep designed the PrepPack™ you need to impress Oxfam’s interviewer.


Oxfam Assessment Centre Objective

Some employers have come to the conclusion that applicants’ personality and professionalism do not shine sufficiently through in interviews and even on tests. To help them demonstrate their talents more expressly and fully, many companies have opened an assessment centre, where they test job candidates’ suitability for an advertised position by a combination of tasks and activities. Employers believe that assessment centres allow applicants to show a wider scope of talents than revealed on tests or during interviews. Events hosted at such assessment centres are of various lengths, ranging from half a day to two days. With many prospective employees invited to pre-employment events, job candidates for a position are usually grouped with their competitors and evaluated against their performance. There are several eliminations done during the event so that not all job candidates arrive to the final stage of the assessment involving an interview with the higher management of the company. Only those job candidates who convincingly demonstrated adaptability, analytical thinking, commercial awareness, and leadership are usually invited for the final interview that often culminates in a job offer.


All You Need to Know Before Launching Your Job Search

What Is the Purpose of the Oxfam Aptitude Tests?

More often than not, a candidate’s CV is not able to paint the full picture regarding abilities and competencies being looked for by Oxfam. The Oxfam aptitude tests give more insight into your talents and strengths which are necessary in a workplace setting. If your assessment profile matches the company’s standards for employment, you are more likely to be offered the position you seek.

How Is Oxfam Personality Test Evaluated?

When completing a personality test it is important you understand the nature of this test. The purpose of this assessment is to establish based on your personality and behavioural style if you will do the job, if you can do the work, and if you would actually fit the position. The questions will target work-related activities such as managing stakeholders, working in groups, complying with regulations, problem-solving, leadership skills, coping with pressure and stress. You should also determine which personality traits are important for Oxfam and for your desired position. For example, an HR manager’s scores are supposed to reflect her communication and organizational skills, whereas for a sales position, a competitive and initiative nature is favoured.

When Is the Best Time to Begin Preparing for My Oxfam CEB SHL Test?

Since the CEB SHL test can make or break your chances of becoming an employee with Oxfam, it is essential to begin preparing as soon as possible. JobTestPrep gives you the advantage over other candidates through the use of our comprehensive practice tests and study guides.

What Are the Different Steps That Oxfam May Utilize to Find the Right Candidate?

  • Pre-employment tests - Applicant Talent Assessments weed out the candidates that do not have the skills to properly perform on the job. The company wants to know you can do the technical work.
  • The Interview - This could include a screening phone call, followed by a first, second and even third interview. Of course, the process for C-Levels will be more intense than for lower level workers.
  • The follow up – After each stage make sure you follow up by thanking your interviewer for their time and to reiterate your interest in the position.
  • Background and Drug Testing – Be aware many companies will check your criminal history and may even perform drug tests.
  • Reference Checks – Usually once the company has made up their mind to hire they will ask you for one or two references to collaborate your story.

Jobtestprep will provide you all the tools you need to guide you through each stage of the process.

What does Oxfam Hiring Process entail?

According to a recent report in Forbes, the length of an interview process has almost doubled from 13 to 23 days on average. The reason for this is that the hiring process has become more comprehensive with more hoops and hurdles that applicants need to jump through. These include a range of screening methods, such as Personality, Verbal, Situational Judgement and Mathematical Reasoning along with potentially several rounds of face-to-face interviews with HR and managers at various levels in the company. As the process becomes more complex, JobTestPrep is here to give you the knowledge you need to succeed.

What Should I Expect at the Oxfam Assessment Centre?

The Oxfam assessment centre may last for several hours. You and other candidates will be expected to participate in a number of group activities and simulations, as well as role play exercises and face-to-face interviews. The purpose of the assessment centre is to not only evaluate your workplace competencies, but also your ability to cooperate with others.
