Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at VSO (London, England) in June 2017.
The first activity at the assessment centre was to work in teams and build giraffes using newspaper, tape, scissors and a stapler. At certain points teams had to swap and continue working on the giraffe of another team. Afterwards, there were lots of activities e.g. discussing how we would react to situations that could potentially come up on placement. There were a couple of facilitators and lots of staff just sitting around taking notes. Then there was an individual interview part with the usual questions, in a chilled and friendly mood. At the end we had to come up with a presentation of what we learned during the day.
