LAMDA, an Ofqual regulated arts-based awarding organisation and higher education institute, are recruiting for a brand-new role, Systems Improvement Coordinator to work internally and externally with their assessment provider to improve systems and processes.
They are also an awarding organisation, offering world-renowned qualifications in communication and performance and inspiring the next generation of confident communicators through their examinations in drama, literature and poetry. LAMDA believes drama has the power to transform lives wanting more people to share in this experience through training, qualifications, work, productions and facilities.
The Systems Improvement Coordinator is a new role for LAMDA and will play a pivotal role in ensuring learners on an international scale experience a seamless and positive assessment process.
As someone with previous experience working with exam or assessment platform providers you will work with LAMDA’s provider ExamTrack to develop and improve the business processes of exams, creating synergy between the examination systems and other internal processes.
You will be creative in looking at new ways of doing things and work closely with ExamTrack to turn these ideas into a reality.
The first project the Systems Improvement Coordinator will work on is ensuring the finance and exam systems work cohesively to ensure the income, costs and debtors of the Examinations Department are maintained through efficient and effective systems processes.
On a day-to-day basis, you will also have oversight of some of the key financial activities of the examinations team including providing monthly overview reports on income, costs, and debtors to identify risks and opportunities, assist with chasing late payments from customers and escalating issues to your colleagues in the finance team and oversee the processing of Examiner fee payment and expense claims.
This is a new role for LAMDA and open-ended in its potential for career growth. So if you or someone you know is looking to expand on your experience of the online assessment systems and processes and make a real change and difference to learners across the world then get in touch today for more details.
