Working at Ofqual

As people look to us to set the standards in terms of consistency, reliability, quality and integrity, our work is often challenging. It’s interesting and hugely rewarding too, and it takes place in a dynamic environment. What’s more, we are a new organisation, so the opportunity exists for people to really make their mark. Put together, this makes us a fascinating place to build a career.

Not only do we have a broad range of jobs within the organisation, the opportunities for training and career progression are exceptional too. We want to create a truly developmental culture where people can make the most of their existing skills as well as learn new ones.

We are the regulator of qualifications, examinations and tests in England. We ensure that learners of all ages get the results that their work deserves, that standards are maintained and that qualifications count now and in the future. We also make sure that the available qualifications meet the needs of both learners and employers. Ours is vital and varied work – and you could help us succeed.

The Government will be bringing in legislation to establish Ofqual as the regulator of qualifications. Until this legislation is passed Ofqual will operate as part of the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA). Afterwards, Ofqual will be accountable to parliament.
