LAMDA are seeking an energetic and collaborative team player to lead their busy Examinations department as an Examinations Team Leader.
LAMDA is an arts based awarding body and examination board who are excited to welcome someone to their team, and lead their busy examinations department to help with their growth and development within the performing arts sector.
The primary focus of this role is to be responsible for the Examinations Operations Department of UK Private Exams, providing leadership, support and line management to a team of Examinations Coordinators in order to meet the Department’s operational objectives, which will contribute to LAMDA’s overall business objectives.
As the Examinations Team Leader, you will manage and assess the Department’s administrative workload and ensure the Operations Examinations Coordinators are appropriately trained and allocated to tasks to meet changing priorities. You will manage the UK Private Examinations Coordinators as well as any casual workers, providing all support, training and workload assistance needs.
You will liaise with the Deputy Examinations Operations Manager to allocate Examinations Coordinators, review and escalate the resource requirements to meet the business needs of the department in accordance with operating procedures and operations standards.
As the Examinations Team Leader, you will also be liaising with other Team Leaders and the Deputy Operations Manager to flex resource between teams and request temporary/causal workers to deal with peaks of activity. You will be the first point of contact within the team for the booking, scheduling, results of examinations and general enquiries from internal and external stakeholders.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is ready to take that step up into a management role and has excellent communication skills, previous administrative experience, as well as knowledge of Examinations and their full lifecycle.
