Job Description

Job Title: Assessment Manager – ICT/Computer Science


Salary: £38,000-£44,000


Location: Cambridge & Hybrid working


Contract: Permanent, full time


We are Cambridge University Press & Assessment, a world-leading academic publisher and assessment organisation and a proud part of the University of Cambridge.


Here, you can make an incredible impact on our world, you can help to change the lives of millions, give them the vital support they need to unlock their potential, and enable them to succeed. You will be managing some of the most important products we make that directly influence our learners and students around the world, and being part of Cambridge means you have a huge reputation behind you.


This is a fantastic opportunity for a current/previous Teacher to take a step away from the classroom, whilst still working in education and pursuing potential around the world.


About The Role


You will be our subject specialist in ICT/Computer Science and will be signing off the exams that our students sit every single series. From working with Development colleagues to manage the design of our syllabuses, you will then manage the lifecycle of a portfolio of syllabuses. You will oversee the production of all assessment materials associated with the syllabuses to ensure their successful delivery for learners. When not creating and signing off exams, you will work on grading, setting the thresholds that our learners are held to. With ICT/Computer Science being a key subject, recognised globally as a fundamental skill, you will be an incredibly important member of our Cambridge International team.


Working as part of Cambridge University, we work to incredibly high standards. All of our question papers need to be 100% accurate and error free. Every paper has to assess what we say it assesses, and the grade thresholds that you set have to provide a reliable indication for employers and universities around the world of candidates' mastery of ICT/Computer Science. You must make sure the exams are comparable from series-to-series, year-to-year, and are fair to candidates from different countries and backgrounds. You will really be involved in shaping the future of ICT/Computer Science at Cambridge, and around the world.


Working with a range of stakeholders, you will definitely have a varied caseload. You will manage the recruitment of our Assessment Specialists, including Setters, Revisers, Vetters and Assistant Examiners. You will manage their allocation of work, performance and succession planning. You will work closely with our ministry customers around the world as you work collaboratively with them to develop and revise our syllabuses.


About You


As one of our specialists in ICT/Computer Science, we are looking for you to have a degree in ICT/Computer Science, or a very closely related subject. Your standard of English will be very high, and knowledge of assessments in an education setting is very key here. You will have spent some time in the classroom as a Teacher, and may even have a knowledge of international education.


Any post-graduate qualifications in educational assessment, project management, or experience in examination would make you incredibly successful in this role.
