Job Description

Would you like to be involved with supporting the delivery of new qualifications in Fire Door Safety? 

We are looking for competent industry experts to join us as assessment writers and editors for our Fire Door Safety with immediate effect. 

Further detail on these elements, including sample assessments, can be found in the qualification specification on the Level 3 Award in Fire Door Safety qualifications and training courses | City & Guilds (cityandguilds.com). This examiner role gives you the opportunity to work alongside your current job, to build additional income with competitive daily rates, and to continue to develop your own skills and development.  

The Task Profile outlines the expectations of the Writer/Editor examiner role, and the Person Specification outlines the experience we’re looking for someone to have as an examiner. 

Applicants must meet the essential criteria:

  • Experience of working in a carpentry/ joinery background
  • Experience of Fire door installation (not just inspection.)
  • Ideally hold a FIRAS certification or equivalent to demonstrate specific fire door installation knowledge. 
Industry Area: Construction
Associate Type: Examiner
Territories: Remote / Home Based, National
Refno: 10811

For more information please see the Task Profile / Person Specification

The assessments within the Fire Door Safety qualifications include on-screen Multiple Choice exams.  

We are looking for examiners to help write and edit Multiple-Choice questions (MCQ) initially, with ongoing maintenance of the examinations when needed.  

A one-day MCQ writing and editing training course will be held in February/March for successful applicants. Following successful completion of the training, the MCQ test would be sent to the scrutineer for them to take as if they were a candidate (without a mark scheme available), making notes on whether questions were fit-for-purpose, or required further editing/fine-tuning in line with City & Guild Assessment Principles (training to be provided). Once the test has been completed and answers submitted, the scrutineer will then be sent the mark scheme and write comments on usability of the multiple choice questions/improvements required – confirming whether questions were answerable and assess the topic/skills intended. Scrutiny is expected to take place in March/April. Scrutineer work is desk-based, so work will be sent to the scrutineer, typically on a 1-week turnaround. This role can fit around other commitments as there are minimal meetings once training has been completed. You may be asked for clarity on comments made over the scrutiny process via telephone or email after scrutiny is complete. Applications will be reviewed on an on-going basis between now and end of February 2024, suitable applicants will be invited to attend training.  

When completing your application, it is essential you read the person specification fully, and map your application to show where you meet the requirements set out. Please note applications that do not demonstrate meeting the person specification may be declined or delayed. We look forward to receiving your application. 

We believe that diversity and inclusion strengthen and enriches us, and that it is the responsibility of everyone at the City & Guilds Group to drive this value. We work hard to be inclusive in our approach to recruitment and associate opportunities, whilst still ensuring we meet our regulatory requirements. We strongly encourage and welcome applications from diverse and underrepresented communities.
