I received a link to book in for the assessment centre but now it's vanished when I log into my account. Anyone else going through this?

Assessment days are all in Liverpool regardless of where in the country you’ve applied for then? I’m pretty close to Liverpool so it isn’t too bad for me. But going to probably book in at a hotel the night before to make it a bit less daunting and explore the place beforehand so I’m not rushing haha

I have been offered an interview. I have booked the 25th October. No idea what the assessment centre will entail, possibly role play or presentation? The advert did state:
The behaviours will be tested via four exercises and more detail will be provided when you receive your invitation to attend.

Hopefully we receive more info as I'd like to prepare myself!

I’m not sure it states what they’re assessing us on in the job description but it doesn’t say how they’ll assess us. I’ve never been to an assessment centre before so I’m quite nervous! I’ve booked the 21st of October 😬

I've been to a couple. Don't be nervous they're never as bad as people would believe

Hello.I also got an interview. Do not worry too much about the assessment day. It would be a bit overwhelming when you get the assessment day instructions. It's great you get it in advance but oh my! It looks crazy intense. But I cant see a group excercise to work as team as such. There is a written exercise, oral briefing one to one on a certian topic ,in tray exercise and finally complete a health and safety audit for a random business. It was a bit shocked when I first read it as it is really based on the job you actually apply to be a trainee for. Now I am better after I gathered info and can relate to previous experience. But when I read.. ''give advice to landowner about energy investment companies'' my heart dropped lol

I think it’s best not too get too hung up on the topic, they will be looking at how you interpret the data and present it back to them.

Hey guys, my invite to the assessment centre has just been cancelled. This is a shambles, also one of my friends had the same happen to him. However, my friend who did not even answer the questions still has an assessment day invite, with a score of 12. How is this justified? Seems as if the HSE has not even bothered to read our motivational questions.
