Assessment Manager, Science (Chemistry or related science)
Cambridge, Hybrid Working
Are you a chemistry specialist looking for a new challenge?
The role of Assessment Manager provides an opportunity to make an impact on the international education landscape. You will be managing a range of Science qualifications and assessment materials, which may include Cambridge IGCSE and O Level to Cambridge International A Level. Key to the role will be the management of the question paper production processes, working with subject specialists on test specifications, and the production of sample and live assessment materials. You will be checking, proof-reading, and signing off question papers and mark schemes, as well as managing examiners to ensure that assessments are accurately marked and graded.
This is an exciting opportunity to join an innovative, dynamic team working to produce top-class assessments.
We are looking for an enthusiastic team player who is self-motivated and confident in their specialist area. You'll be a graduate, ideally with experience in teaching (possibly in an international context) and will have knowledge of assessment in education. A keen problem solver with meticulous accuracy, you will have a proven ability to manage your workload when under pressure to meet multiple deadlines and will enjoy contributing to the success of Cambridge Assessment International Education.
Cambridge International prepares school students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. Our international qualifications are recognised by the world's best universities and employers, giving students a wide range of options in their education and career.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we devote our resources to delivering high-quality educational programmes that can unlock learners' potential.
If you are up for the challenge, we welcome an application to join us on our journey to provide excellence in education.
The key to our work is our colleagues, whose shared commitment enables us to have an ever-greater impact. We are a united, vibrant, and respectful global community of people, and we ensure that every individual is recognised, listened to, and cared for. And because our impact is amplified when our people are empowered, we give everyone the opportunity to develop in their own way. Whether you want a career that's linear, or want to follow your own path, we'll support you, and help give you the resources and training you'll need to be bold and take ownership of what you do.
The closing date for application is 26 September 2021 and interviews are scheduled to take place week commencing 4 October 2021.
