Cognitive Ability & Typing Assessments
- We will send you an email with a link to your assessments which you can complete online should you meet minimum criteria with your application.

All the assessments used in this recruitment process have been designed by psychologists and have been thoroughly researched for their use in a variety of settings, including recruitment/occupational settings.
- Applicants who score adequately at previous assessment steps will be invited to a telephone interview. We will call you to book a suitable time to complete the telephone call where we will ask you some behavioural interview questions to confirm some details and assess your match to the role requirements.
Reading Comprehension & Personality Profile
- If you are successful through the telephone interview stage you will be sent a reading comprehension and personality profile via two separate email links to be completed online. The personality profile is designed to assess the workplace values, behaviours and skills that are critical to this Communications Officer role.
- The assessment centre will take about 4 hours.
- The assessment centre will include a number of activities to ensure that you possess the skills, conduct and characteristics required to become a Communications Officer. Applicants who attend our assessment centres are asked to participate in a group activity, a work role play and a simulation including navigation and memory, and data entry and spelling assessments. You will be assessed by a number of individual assessors throughout the assessment centre and there will be lots of opportunities to demonstrate your skills.
