Maths Expert? Who wants a flexible and satisfying working life?
Are you a Maths Teacher or Mathematician who would like a role with flexibility while still working with your subject every day? As an Assessment Manager at Cambridge Assessment, you will be able to have both, as you work with other experts who share a love and appreciation of Maths.
Maybe you are a teacher who would like a better work life balance?
Do you want more time to spend with your family, friends or hobbies? Would you like a change of direction and the opportunity to build a long-term career in assessment, still utilising your educational background, subject knowledge and strong professional experience?
A role with a global reach
Working with colleagues, Assessment Specialists, and other leading experts, the purpose of this role is to oversee the development and production of high-quality assessment materials, as well as to manage the marking and grading of syllabuses. Collaborating with a wide range of stakeholders from school partners to ministries, universities and consultants, the reach of your work will be global, positively impacting learners in countries including Afghanistan, Kenya and Myanmar.

At Cambridge Assessment we regularly have in-house events, talks and research seminars, as well as leading experts who come from external companies to share their expertise.
