Situational Judgement Test

The Situational Judgement Test is designed to assess abilities, relative to the role for which you are applying to at JLR. The assessment is suitable for people who have little or no practical work experience.

The Assessment

In this assessment you will be presented with workplace scenarios which those in Early Careers roles could experience whilst working at JLR.

In each scenario you will be given some background information to consider presented in a video, followed by four different possible actions.

You are required to judge the effectiveness of each action using a rating scale that ranges from ‘Extremely Ineffective’ to ‘Extremely Effective’.

Please look at the example below. In the example, the action has been rated as ‘Fairly Effective’.
