Partnership and Accreditation Officer

With over 60,000 members, The British Psychological Society is the professional body for psychologists in the UK and the largest psychology community in Europe. An exciting opportunity is available for a professional and confident individual to join our successful Partnership and Accreditation Team, working out of the Society’s Leicester head office. The team is busy and hard-working, with responsibility for accrediting undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in psychology delivered across the UK and with our UK university partners internationally.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual to provide specialist advice and support to our partner courses and review teams. This is a strongly customer-facing role, requiring excellent interpersonal skills, confidence, and the ability to communicate effectively to different audiences including the production of formal reports. The post holder will be expected to undertake accreditation visits across the UK as well as internationally, in addition to contributing to and leading a number of other events and meetings as required, therefore a willingness and ability to travel regularly and extensively is essential (including overnight stays). Demonstration of impeccable time management and organisation and the ability to keep on top of multiple projects and tasks in an agile and responsive manner is key. Previous experience of quality assurance, or accreditation, or regulation in Higher Education, or within a professional body environment is essential, as is experience of writing formal reports and servicing committees.
