The escape room format, designed to identify core behaviours such as the ability to collaborate with others and display creative thinking, is being rolled out for the Society’s emerging talent applicants, including graduates and apprentices, working with Nationwide’s own occupational psychologists and those of its assessment partner cut-e (now Aon).

Candidates are given 25 minutes to solve a series of clues, which help them uncover the padlock combinations to five boxes, the last of which holds the key to escape from the room. The clues require candidates to solve a series of logical challenges, including code breaking, crosswords and spatial puzzles.
