Senior Assessors and Assessors – Turing Assessment Hub

We are seeking Senior Assessors and Assessors to participate in the 2022 Turing Assessment Hub.

Do you want to contribute to a leading global mobility scheme supporting students from schools, colleges and universities to access international study and work opportunities, delivering transformative opportunities for individuals and communities across the UK?

If so, you could play a crucial part in the selection of future Turing projects.

The Association of Commonwealth Universities is managing the Assessment Hub on behalf of Capita as part of the Turing Scheme. The Assessment Hub is responsible for the receipt and checking of all Turing applications, the evaluation of all eligible applications, the appeals process and for making recommendations to the Project Advisory Board on projects to be funded. We estimate that there may be more than 400 Turing applications to assess.

To assess applications, we are recruiting:

  • Four Senior Assessors

We are looking for three Senior Assessors to lead sector-based assessment teams, and one Senior Assessor for Skills and Widening Participation to support the sector teams.

Senior Assessors will have substantial specific knowledge and experience at a middle or senior management level in the UK higher education (HE), further education (FE) or Schools sector. Applicants will hold a track record of working with or leading evaluation or assessment for local, national or international agencies and an ability or track record of leading teams.

  • 21 Assessors

We are looking for a pool of assessors to undertake assessments. Assessors will be responsible for evaluating Turing applications against the agreed criteria. Each assessor will work within a sector team supported by a Senior Assessor.

Assessors will have an ability to demonstrate sector-specific knowledge and substantial experience at a middle or senior management level in UK HE, FE or Schools, as well as a track record or evidence of working with high-stakes evaluation or assessment for local or national agencies, and a track record or experience of effective report writing.
