About

An assessment centre is often a day that constitutes the final stage of the application process. These assessment days will either take place at the employer’s offices or at private centres. You are evaluated through a series of assessment centre exercises, including both individual and group tasks. These give your prospective employer a rounded profile of your competencies and an insight into your performance in the workplace. The assessment centre includes the following stages.


Presentation

In this part of the day you will be given a large document detailing a case study. For example, you may be given information detailing the rise of Facebook and how it now affects the way all businesses work. You will have to give a 10 minute presentation to two assessors about the topic and have to answer some questions about your presentation for an additional 10 minutes. 


UBS Interview

This interview is generally a one-on-one interview and is similar to the one you have had on the phone. It is really important to show how motivated you are in getting this job as people have been rejected on these grounds before. Here are some UBS interview questions so you can get a feel of the company:

  • Why do you want to work for UBS?
  • If we gave you £10,000,000 to invest, what would you do with it?
  • Tell me about a recent story that really interested you?
  • What would you bring to the company?
  • How do you evaluate a company?

This interview will last about 30 minutes and it is important to try and remain calm and confidant throughout. Make sure you do your preparation on your job, the company, and the core competences of the company.


Group Exercise

In this stage of the application process you will be put in a room with the other candidates and given a ream of notes outlining a particular project. For example, you have been given £1,000,000 to run a campaign launching a new product, how would you go about doing this? The goal here isn't necessarily the solution although this is important. The most important thing is to show off your collaboration skills with others. You need to be pushy but not too much. Being result-oriented is also important here. You will be given 10 minutes to read through the information and another 30 minutes to come up with a good solution to the problem.

With correct preparation to the tasks at hand you will be able to do your best. Good luck in your application.
