What it's about
We are recruiting for an Education Services Support Officer. The role will be within the Education Services department, part of the Education Division of Cambridge Assessment International Education.
The Education Services department works with ministries and national education bodies around the world. We engage with governments to deliver educational reform projects which support countries in raising their educational standards. In some countries we provide their national secondary school qualifications, or support the development of localised syllabuses and assessment systems.

What you'll be doing
You will play a key supporting role in the team which manages the delivery of existing large-scale education reform projects, identifies and wins new projects and manages contracts with ministries worldwide.

What we're looking for
This is an opportunity for a highly organised and flexible individual with excellent interpersonal, administrative and written business communication skills, keen to work in an international context.
As part of this role you will regularly prepare documents, arrange meetings and co-ordinate overseas travel. The ability to effectively manage your workload is therefore key, as is the ability to deal with more senior personnel in a diplomatic and tactful manner.

You must be IT literate, with skills in Word and Excel in particular.
Experience of working in an international context and an awareness of Prince2 methodologies and the global education sector would be an advantage.

• Generous contributory pension
• 28 days annual leave, plus bank holidays
• Annual performance related bonus and increases (discretionary)
• Enhanced maternity/paternity pay and childcare voucher scheme
• Employee discount and cash back scheme at 2,500 retailers
• Cycle scheme
