The Role:

In a school of 1,700 students, including a very successful Sixth Form, managing examinations is a busy and complex operation. 

Together with a full time assistant, you will be responsible for all aspects of internal and external examinations, from registering entries to producing exam timetables, organising exam rooms, managing a team of casual invigilators, monitoring compliance with exam board protocols at every stage, providing advice to Directors of Subject and senior leaders and analysing data.

We already have excellent and well-established systems in place which have ensured the smooth running of exams for many years.  Due to the relocation of our current Exams Manager, who has been with us for the last 9 years, this opportunity has become available for another experienced Exams Manager.

The Candidate:

You must have experience and specialist knowledge of managing the exams process and of exam board protocols.  You will be a highly organised professional administrator who is able to work with high levels of independence.  You will be an excellent communicator.  You will be willing to work flexibly and able to plan thoroughly and well ahead, ensure all deadlines are met, confidently provide accurate and timely advice and support to Directors of Subject, and able to ensure the smooth running of a large scale, deadline-driven, complex admin process. 

Great Barr Academy is known for its excellent team ethos so you will be an excellent team player who is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that things go to plan.  You will be able to remain calm under pressure and solve problems quickly and independently.
