Chief examiner/deputy chief examiner for IB program

Senior Examining Positions - Diploma Programme
As a result of continued growth and development the IB is seeking to make the senior examining appointments. Applicants for chief examiner positions should have a degree or equivalent in the appropriate subject, recent teaching experience at university entrance level, and experience of external examining or knowledge of assessment procedures. International experience and knowledge of Spanish and/or French would be an advantage. Applications are sought particularly from university academics. However, applications from experienced teachers of the IB Diploma Programme are also welcomed for all posts other than chief examiners. The appointments will take effect from September 2009 and, for most positions, will be expected to last five years provided an initial term of two years is successfully completed. Examination sessions are held in May and November each year.

A chief examiner is generally expected to lead a team of senior examiners, some of whom will be practising IB teachers. Please note, although much of the work may be done from home, the above posts involve participation in meetings held in Cardiff, and occasionally elsewhere, a few times a year. Examiners are not regarded as employees of the IB.

Applications are invited from around the world. Further information about the IB can be found at our web site, For further details and an application form please contact:
