    I have applied again this year (cyber security) I have my assessment centre on 18th April. There is no specific order in which they do the tasks in. Last year they just had an assessor come in and they call your name/s out to do one of the particular tasks. There wasn't a reasoning assessment last year so not too sure what that is. The presentation I did last year was just done in front of two assessors. There was 8 in my assessment and I know at least three from my assessment were offered a job.

    For the group task it as an exercise based on bt mobile. There was lots of different cards and a new one was passed to you every minute and you had to discuss within your group the affect it could have on BT's customers. There was no right or wrong answers they just want to see how well you work/communicate within a group. Best advice is to get involved and speak as much you can don't just sit back and let others do the talking. The exercise was talking about something BT could help improve with the power of communication. I play lawn bowls so I spoke about getting more youth into the game.

    I liked the group exercise, so I hope they do something similar this year

    Has anyone been to an assessment centre this year already, if so, how did you find it? and was the format of the day the same as last year (either from your past experience, or from what you've read in this thread)?

    Thanks!

    Yeah i've had the two update emails, i think they take time because they need enough people in a certain area to set an assessment centre up, just a waiting game now.

    I originally applied for the TSO IT in Manchester. I did pass the video interview but was not invited to an assessment centre as they said that there are no vacancies available in the area.
    When I told them that my first choice is TSO IT, they said if there is any more vacancies available, then I may be invited to an assessment centre.

    I am now being considered for the Customer Service Operation in Manchester.

    Waiting game
