Job: Academic Admissions Assessors

The Blavatnik School of Government educates students from around the world on its one-year Master of Public Policy (MPP). Admitting outstanding students to this programme is a key priority for the School. Each year we receive a huge number of applications and we are hiring Academic Admissions Assessors to work alongside our faculty to ensure that the best students are selected.  

Assessors will participate in training, complete up to 200 hours of assessment, and attend a number of meetings to discuss verdicts and judgments. Training will take place in November and December 2018 with assessment between December 2018 and March 2019, peaking from 25 January until 11 March. 

Assessors are expected to have academic experience in a university context or similar. Having a doctorate, particularly in an area relevant to public policy (e.g. philosophy, economics, political science, or law), would also be an advantage.

Assessors will be paid at the rate of £21.56 per hour (the hourly rate for grade 8.2).
