How could I benefit?

We are aware through our staff survey and other feedback that career development is very important to individuals.

As well as gaining insight into personal leadership preferences and career motivations, those who attend the development and assessment centres:

  • have an increased awareness of their performance and potential
  • create a development plan tailored to their role and career aspirations
  • could be aligned to future vacancies

The development and assessment centres act as a great career and development 'MOT': helping you understand your strengths, preferences, development priorities and allowing you to hone your future aspirations and actions.
