Working with awarding bodies

Awarding bodies (also known as awarding organisations and examination boards) offer a wide range of opportunities; from course design and development, to quality assurance, through to middle and senior management, and even business support and operations roles.Passionate about designing and developing world-class qualifications? Whether you want to work on a permanent, temporary or contract basis, working with an awarding body could be the perfect option for you. Among many other roles, awarding bodies look for experienced teaching staff to contribute to assessment design on an ongoing basis, as well as temporary examiners to mark assessments over the summer period – so if you’re looking for a change or just more flexibility, working for an awarding body could be a smart move.

Don’t have teaching or assessing experience? As well as teachers, lecturers and examiners, awarding bodies regularly recruit for IQAs and quality specialists; middle and senior management roles; and even business support and operations staff. We work with awarding organisations to recruit at all levels, so no matter your career goals – we’re sure we can help you find your next opportunity!
