Bespoke assessment centre for NHS Acute Trust

We designed a bespoke assessment centre process and exercises for this NHS Acute Trust to ensure that candidates could demonstrate that they had the appropriate skills and behavioural traits to be considered for senior appointment.

The Challenge

This group of hospitals set out to make significant changes in its organisational structure, and, as part of this, created a number of new senior medical, nursing and general management roles. A significant number of internal candidates were anticipated to apply for these opportunities, and the organisation wanted to ensure that candidates could demonstrate that they had the appropriate levels of leadership potential, management skills and behavioural traits to be considered for appointment.


The Solution

Carter Corson was commissioned to deliver the initial stages of this process, advising and supporting the Trust in the design of a credible assessment centre process to identify key management skills and aptitudes, the ability to work as a member of a senior team across internal and organisational boundaries, behavioural and leadership style preferences, and an assessment of future potential and likely areas of development needs for each candidate.


We designed a bespoke assessment centre process and exercises, including competency based interviews, on-line psychometric questionnaires (SHL OPQ, and the Hogan Development Survey), as well as a presentation and a group exercise which centred around real-life issues relevant to the organisation.

The Impact

Both client and candidates received a summary report and verbal developmental feedback on their performance.

The Trust received verbal reporting of overall results and suggested questions for final interview, giving them a wealth of data for their final selection.
