Work for us

We currently have vacancies for:

▼ Chief Examiner - Consultant 

CIEH is going through a period of change and as part of this we are now looking to appoint a number or roles to support the activity within the Awarding Body. Currently, we offer a route for environmental health professionals seeking to become Officers and provision for work-based individuals working in an environmental health capacity, i.e. food safety and control. These are exciting times for CIEH, and as such we will be exploring and developing complementary learning pathways to support the profession either to fulfil role obligations or to guide career progression. 

The Examination Team is composed of Examiners, Moderators, Markers and Writers who are experienced in marking and moderation and possess practical industry experience that enables them to see the value of learning to achieve professional qualifications within the context of environmental health.

Part of a highly experienced team, you must be familiar with and capable of assessment development, marking and moderation and feedback together with other assessment related processes and, when required, will contribute to the continual improvement and development of CIEH’s robust marking and moderation processes.

You need to be able to work under pressure within a given fixed timescale and be conscious of others’ involvement and dependence on the role. This requires experience of working as an individual within a dispersed team, while being able to blend and actively contribute to the wider discussion when appropriate. You should be impartial and open to new ideas and ways of working. Importantly, you must be able to peer review, provide and receive constructive feedback, always behaving professionally and cohesively to constantly maintain the value and focus with the learner. All members of the Examining Team are expected to hold CIEH membership.

The Chief Examiner will participate as an active member of the Learning and Qualification Advisory Group, you will provide a periodic overview of the activity of the awarding body to the rest of the group, and advise on the strategy associated with qualifications and professional development. Alongside this, you will ensure that professional qualifications and learning activities meet the requirements of the associated specification and maintain acceptable threshold standards year on year.
