Apprentice Assessment Day 2017

We held our second annual assessment day on the 20 April. We had 13 bright and enthusiastic students attend our Blackburn office for the afternoon from local colleges and universities. They were all competing for various vacancies we have on offer including 4 apprentice roles for our Tax, Run My Business and Corporate Services departments and a 12-month work placement opportunity within the Corporate Services team.

The candidates took part in a number of activities including the Lego tower challenge, an aptitude test and team role questionnaire, personal presentation, interview and the ‘Dragons Den’ exercise.

The candidates presented a topic of their choice and gave some interesting presentations on positive mind set, climate change, hobbies and travels.

The ‘Dragons Den’ exercise required the candidates to work in groups to create a new product/business idea or adapt an existing product to pitch to the panel of ‘Dragons’. The candidates worked well under the time pressure and dealt with the questions from the PM+M ‘Dragons’ very well. The PM+M ‘Dragons’ also enjoyed the exercise!

After another successful year, we look forward to hosting next year’s assessment centre! For more information on starting your PM+M careers, please click here to view our current opportunities.
