A candidate is given a series of day-to-day tasks to complete within a set time. For example, answering calls, responding to emails, light admin tasks, or managing a customer complaint.

Job simulation tests are exercises designed to replicate a real-life working environment. It assesses a candidate’s ability to do a particular role, such as answering calls, completing a skills test, or presenting a report.

These exercises are designed to simulate real-life team interactions required for the role. They cover writing a report, delivering a presentation, or partaking in a workshop.

A candidate is placed into a high-pressure work-related scenario and asked to use their judgment to overcome it.

The skills assessment tests show a candidate's ability in a particular skill, competency, or knowledge area required for the role. They can be used for any role that lends themselves to specialised positions such as software developers.

This is the ultimate job simulation, with candidates thrust into a real-life situation alongside actors. They are designed to place candidates into agitating scenarios to see how they work with those around them.
