Engineering Independent End-point Assessor (Midlands)

Following apprenticeship qualification reforms, apprenticeship standards are now mainly assessed by End-point Assessment, once candidates have completed certain elements of their training with the training provider.  Therefore, we are currently recruiting a permanent, full-time role to undertake this work with us.

We have a position based around the Midlands area; however, you should be prepared to travel according to the needs of the business and so we would ordinarily expect you to have a full, clean UK driving license.

When applying for the role, do look at the person specifications carefully and map your skills, experience, knowledge to these, as this is what we will use when selecting applicants for interview. Stronger applicants will be able to cover multiple person specifications/standards. 

This appointment will be made on merit.

We believe that diversity and inclusion strengthen and enriches us, and that it is the responsibility of everyone at the City & Guilds Group to drive this value. As ethnic minority groups and disabled people are currently under-represented within the Group, we particularly encourage and welcome applications from these communities.
