The situational judgement test (SJT) comprises of a series of work-based scenarios you may come across on the Charityworks programme. For each scenario you must review a list of suggested approaches and indicate the one that you would be most likely and least likely to do if you were in that situation.
This test will give you the chance to demonstrate the style and approach you prefer to take to challenges at work. For more advice on taking SJTs go to http://www.criterion.co.uk/about-us/sjts-advice/
You will be presented with 12 scenarios, each describing a situation or challenge you could encounter on the Charityworks programme. You will also see a selection of possible approaches that you could take to respond to the situation or challenge described in the scenario.
For each scenario you must:
- Tick the approach to the scenario that you think is the most effective (i.e. what you would be most likely to do if you were in that situation)
- Tick the approach to the scenario that you think is the least effective (i.e. what you would be least likely to do if you were in that situation)
You should base your responses purely on the information that is presented to you and not make any inferences. Please note that all the scenarios in this assessment are fictitious.
To understand the layout of the assessment, there are two example questions provided on the right hand side.
