Head of Assessment Delivery


Peridot Partners

NCUK is a unique UK higher education establishment owned by a consortium of leading universities dedicated to giving international students guaranteed access to universities worldwide and helping them succeed when they get there.

They are currently recruiting for a Head of Assessment Delivery to lead a small yet pivotal team during a period of exciting and ambitious growth and change. As someone who has a sound understanding of assessment delivery and theory including designing different methods of assessment, you will manage the full operational lifecycle including setting, logistics, marking, moderation, and results processing.

You will also be someone who enjoys the challenge of leading on strategic projects and has experience in undertaking product reviews, devising new assessment strategies, and implementing and embedding a digital assessment approach to support NCUK’s aim to double their student numbers over the next 3 years on an international scale.

NCUK is currently seeking Ofqual recognition, and the Head of Assessment Delivery will be part of this key project team bringing their experience and knowledge of regulatory requirements in regard to qualification and assessment frameworks.

As Head of Assessment, you will initially lead a team of 5 direct reports, including supporting and mentoring an apprentice and look to grow and develop the team to meet the growth ambitions and targets.

You will also be able to build strong internal relationships, with NCUK having an organisational headcount of 50 you will need to have strong negotiating and influencing skills to collaborate internally on a number of cross-organisational projects whilst also being willing to roll your sleeves up and be hands-on in the direct operational aspects of assessment delivery.

This is an exciting time to join NCUK, not only due to their change and growth agenda but also as they are about to restructure which will see the Head of Assessment Delivery role be part of a newly formed Senior Leadership Team, having an impact on the whole organisational direction and strategy.

If you are an individual who can balance business as usual responsibilities with the opportunity to be a part of a number of high-profile projects and are looking to join an ambitious and quality-driven organisation, focused on providing opportunities to students on a global basis to progress directly to university, then please contact our advising consultants at Peridot Partners for further information about the role, or to arrange a confidential discussion.
