Through this process we will be assessing candidates’: 

  • Capacity – the intellectual ability to analyse and apply unfamiliar information to complex situations.
  • Achievement – the ability to identify and manage resources in order to deliver results.
  • Relationship-building – the ability to work within, and lead, diverse teams     
  • And, for Technical candidates, Technical expertise.

*An Assessed Internship is an alternative final assessment option for penultimate year students.

This programme is now closed for applications.

I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you as well. I think its been incredibly tough for me to deal with learning that I have dyslexia and navigating what this means for me in terms of my career and it has at times really affected my confidence but I am really grateful to you and Employability because its nice to know people care about people like myself.
