Assessment Centres

 

Assessment Centres are a powerful method for learning about who a person really is.  Instead of asking a candidate what they can do, the Assessment Centre effectively says “Show us how you would do it”.  However, this technique has a number of significant risks which must be anticipated in the initial design stage.

With all their strengths, Assessment Centres can also create enormous organisational problems if not well designed and executed.  With 35 years’ experience, we know exactly where the traps are, and how to avoid them.

SAFESELECT provides a range of Assessment Centre resources that have been specifically developed for the human services community.  Each is tailored to the specific profession.

These represent a flexible and comprehensive set of tasks which are designed to match the job competencies candidates are being evaluated against.  

Assessment Centres can be used for assessing job applicants as well as promotional candidates.

Coroner's Court NSW: Inquest into the Fire at Quaker's Hill Nursing Home

11 September 2015

Mr. Roger Dean was hired to work as a nurse on the night shift at this nursing home.  He began employment on September 13, 2011.  He was hired on the basis of one interview and confirmation that he held a nursing certificate. His resume showed that he had worked at a cake shop since 2007.  It was later revealed that the shop was owned by his domestic partner.  (Why a registered nurse would spend four years working in a cake shop was never queried.)  His last experience working in aged care was listed as being in 2001-2002.  In fact, he had been employed in numerous aged care roles before applying to Quakers Hill, and as was later discovered, had difficulty at each of them.
