English Language Assessor

QA Higher Education (QAHE) works in conjunction with three university partners to deliver an extensive range of undergraduate and post graduate degree programmes. Delivery takes place at two locations in London, together with Birmingham and Manchester.

QAHE is seeking to appoint an English language assessor to support the growing volume of applicants requiring an English language test prior to acceptance onto a degree programme. This role will report into the Head of English Language Assessment.

The role is London based and will involve both face to face and on line testing activities. With three intakes a year workload is often high but during quieter periods of time it is envisaged that the assessor would be able to contribute to the general activities of the English Language Teaching and Support Team, including where appropriate, classroom delivery.

The ideal applicant will hold a qualification in teaching English as a foreign language and will have experience of both teaching English and of English language assessment. Applicants should also have good Word and Excel skills as well as excellent administrative and organisational skills. Applicants also have a flexible approach to working hours as during peak periods some evening and weekend work is required to meet testing workloads.
