Job: Academic Admissions Assessors

The Blavatnik School of Government educates students from around the world on its one-year Master of Public Policy (MPP). Recruiting and admitting outstanding students to these programmes 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 recruited.

Assessors will participate in training, complete up to 200 hours of assessment, and attend a number of meetings to discuss verdicts and judgments. Training and assessment will take place between December 2017 and March 2018 with the peak period of assessment being from 15 January until 5 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 be an advantage. 

Assessors will be paid at the rate of £20.78 per hour (the hourly rate for grade 8.2).
