At CompEx, we don’t just support the safety agenda in the global oil, gas and chemical industries. We actively shape it by running the globally recognised certification scheme for technical workers in both onshore and offshore environments - and we are now looking for a talented Assessment Design Manager who shares our passion for promoting safe and healthy working environments.
If that’s you, we can promise you a career of unusual variety and influence.
You will help us maintain and develop a competency scheme that is relevant, valid and responsive to the evolving needs of industry. This will involve working closely with Subject Matter Experts to develop effective methodologies and content aimed at improving practitioner competence and stakeholder confidence in the Scheme.
So what does that mean on a day-to-day basis? Quite simply, you will lead the entire assessment design process, using your expertise to identify and implement evidence-based improvements, promote best practice and ensure that assessments deliver agreed objectives, learning outcomes and accreditation requirements. You will also manage and evaluate our online assessment platform and ensure a seamless user experience across all learning and assessment formats. Contributing to our strategy and business plans, and influencing product innovation, will also be important aspects of your role.
Clearly, this challenge calls for a successful track record in vocational qualification development, assessment design and evaluation. This must include an understanding of the relevant regulations and legislation as well as experience of project management and quality assurance. Excellent IT and communication skills are, of course, essential. A formal qualification in Assessment Design and experience of certification schemes accredited to IEC/ISO 17024 would be a distinct advantage, as would exposure to professional membership organisations and e-learning technologies.
In return, we can promise you an attractive salary, benefits including a pension, life insurance, ongoing professional development, control over your own schedule and occasional overseas travel.
