Contract type: Fixed term (3 years)
Reports To: Director of the SQE
Direct Reports: NA
Key Stakeholders: The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), Pearson VUE, Kaplan UK Executive Team, IT and SQE leadership colleagues
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is the independent regulatory body created by the Law Society to regulate solicitors of England and Wales. In April 2017, the SRA announced their decision to introduce a new Solicitors Qualifying Examination. The introduction of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) will bring significant change to the current qualification framework and will be the sole route to qualifying as a Solicitor of England and Wales.
Following an extensive, tender process, we are delighted that Kaplan has been appointed as the independent assessment organisation for the SQE. We are now looking to appoint a Programme Manager who will design a robust plan for the creation and delivery of the SQE. The successful candidate will ensure effective resourcing and co-ordination of the programme's projects and management of their inter-dependencies including oversight of any risks and issues arising.
The successful candidates will work alongside our academic leaders as part of the leadership team who will have collective responsibility for developing, piloting and delivering the new examination to upwards of 13,000 candidates per year. The senior team will also play a significant role in supporting Kaplan's Director of the SQE in establishing the business function and day to day processes and procedures.
This is a high profile, demanding and influential role. Working closely with the SRA and the Kaplan UK Executive Team, it offers an exciting and rare opportunity to be part of the team responsible for establishing, operating and growing a major new national licensing examination involving the establishment of a sizeable assessment business function.
Please send your CV with a short email outlining why the role interests you and highlighting your most relevant skills and experience to Rachel.email@example.com. Applications will be accepted until close of business on 24 August 2018.
