We are currently looking to fill a number of vacancies:

  • Leadership and management apprenticeship assessor and verifier positions
  • Level 2 Apprecenticeship Assessors (Signallers/Communications Specialists)
  • Facilities Management Assessors and Verifiers

For full details of these positions see below.



We have been running as an on-line and face to face training provider to commercial and public sector concerns for three years.  We have now moved into apprenticeship delivery and have achieved some startling success.  To this end, we need Apprentice Assessors for Facilities Management able to start in Sep 17, across all regions, and also potential trainers and assessors for BIFM programmes.

They are required around the country, but they will be allocated a region within which to work.  Candidates must be able to drive, work alone and with others, and have the ability to sort out their own diary within an overall framework.

Assessors and verifiers will be on contract for a year, but it is anticipated this will roll onto further years.

Pay scales are still under negotiation, but they will be advantageous, rather better than the typical assessor in FE/HE colleges.  Our approach is to recruit and retain high quality people, and one way to do this is to pay a satisfactory amount to our contractors.

The learning journey is defined as completing two BIFM qualifications, plus the development of a portfolio of evidence, and regular reviews with apprentice and line manager.

The assessors will work to a general timetable but it is up to them to determine the day-to-day schedule and maintain contact with apprentice, employer and The Business School UK.

Apprentices will be generally well motivated and will not cause problems, but it will fall to the assessor to highlight issues when they arise.

Assessors will be contractors/associates of The Business School (UK) Ltd and responsible for their own invoicing, tax, national insurance and be expected to carry professional indemnity insurance.

Contract rates will be paid at a set rate per apprentice.  Payment will be on a monthly basis.

To express your interest in this opportunity, please supply your CV to helen@thebusinessschool.uk.com.  Ensure that your location is included on the CV, as well as your relevant experience specifically working on BIFM qualifications and/or apprenticeships.

LEVEL 2 APPRENTICESHIP ASSESSORS (Signallers/Communications Specialists)

Location England and Scotland – all regions

The role is for a qualified assessor to assist in the delivery of Level 2 Apprenticeships across the UK.  Each assessor will be given a region within which to work.  It will involve face-to-face workshops in regional centres, followed by assessment of candidates both remotely and on site. The assessment process is well established and assessors must have ready access to the Internet.  They must also have a car and licence to drive.

Candidates must be qualified Signallers/Communications specialists, and assessor qualified with either D32/33 or A1 awards.

There is a requirement for 4-6+ assessors, able to start in Sep 17.  The contract is for one year, though opportunities for the extension of the contract for further years are good.  Furthermore, the opportunity to deliver training and assessment in other occupational areas exist and will be a growing requirement.

The work will be both intensive and rewarding.  Standardisation training will be provided to each assessor and there will be regular contact with clients.  The activity will be broadly timetabled, though assessors have considerable scope to determine their own detailed work arrangements.

A further opportunity exists for an Internal Verifier with Signals/Communications experience, to be discussed with potential candidates.

Further questions please contact David on 07738 627141
