Assessment Centres (ACs) have a long history as a behavioural, high-fidelity method for aiding personnel selection. However, the lion’s share of this research has discussed the method as a tool used by individual organizations for selecting candidates into targeted jobs. This chapter proposes an application of the assessment centre method at a higher level of analysis. That is, we discuss how professional bodies might assist organizations in collaborating with each other in order to match individuals with jobs more efficiently and effectively. The practice model we propose is applicable to jobs that are well defined and do not differ substantially from organization to organization, such as jobs within the medical field, academic jobs, and more ‘standardized’ professions, such as accounting.
