Belbin Team Role Theory

"A team is not a bunch of people with job titles, but a congregation of individuals, each of whom has a role which is understood by other members. Members of a team seek out certain roles and they perform most effectively in the ones that are most natural to them." Dr Meredith Belbin

After many years of research into teams and their performance, Dr Meredith Belbin discovered that the highest performing teams had nine different Team Roles present

GetSet - the Belbin Report for Young People

A Belbin Report will identify which combination of the nine Team Role behaviours you prefer.  While the standard Belbin Reports are aimed at people with experience in the workplace, the Belbin GetSet Report has been especially designed for those with little or no work experience allowing you to put the Belbin theory into practice.

Like the standard Belbin Reports, the GetSet reports contain personalised guidance and advice based on current Team Role preferences. As people completing a GetSet Report are at the start of their career journey, these Reports also contain useful information about all of the Team Roles.

Perfect for

  • School leavers looking for employment
  • Those entering higher education (especially useful when filling out UCAS forms)
  • Those entering the world of work for the first time
  • Individuals about to embark on a work placement

The information contained in the GetSet Reports will allow:

You to gain a greater understanding of your strengths and possible contributions, useful for personal development, working with others and interview preparation.
You to get get a head start against others when applying for jobs.
Potential employers to have a good understanding of what you will be able to bring to the role, compared to other candidates.

What are your Team Roles?

Many years of research into team behaviour and performance identified nine different types of behaviours; we call these the nine Team Roles.  An individual can take on more than one Team Role within a team.  The most successful teams have each of the Team Roles present.
