As an Examinations Assistant, you will provide administrative support in all aspects of the work relating to the MRCPsych Examinations. 

One of the two Examinations Assistant roles will focus particularly on the written papers whilst the other will have a broader focus, working often closely with the Head of Examinations on the administration of exams-related meetings such as the Examinations Sub-Committee and Appeals Panel.  Both, however, will assist in front line communications with queries received by the team from such key stakeholders as exam candidates and their sponsors. 

Amongst a variety of responsibilities, you will work on the organisation of incident reports, exam candidate scheduling and contribute to cross-team activities such as the recruitment of new examiners and scheduling of exam candidate sittings.
