EQA vacancies

We are currently accepting applications for associates based in the Access to HE Moderation and RQF External Verification team:

Access to HE

We offer over 30 different diplomas ranging from Science to Creative Industries. Our moderators are the public face of our Access to HE Diploma qualifications. Moderation activity is twice a year to conduct moderation visits and working with centres to support their Access provision.

External Verification

We have over 500 qualifications in a range of subject suites. External verifiers work with centres to ensure that the qualifications are delivered and assessed within the qualification parameters and approve certification. This is through EV activity and Direct Claims monitoring. Verification activity is completed throughout the year and the number of interactions varies depending on the centre’s demographic. We are constantly reviewing our provision and are looking for motivated and committed individuals to join our team of moderators and external verifiers. Currently, all activity is completed remotely but there may be the requirement for centre-based visits at times. Our EQAs must be able to facilitate both remote activity and face to face activity.

We are currently looking for individuals with Access to HE experience and/or vocational qualification experience and an eye for detail to join our team. Moderators and External Verifiers are expected to be subject specialists in their field and have recent industry experience. They must hold a teaching qualification or equivalent and have experience of internal and/or external quality assurance. 

We are looking for associates in the following subject areas:

  • Healthcare/science
  • Motorsport
  • Games, Animation and VFX
  • Counselling
  • Art and Design
  • Creative Industries

Please feel free to review our current Access to HE diploma offer and RQF qualifications on the AIM website (  and submit an online application form with accompanying CV if you feel you could quality assure any of the qualifications/diplomas we offer. Please ensure that your CV outlines your recent experience in the relevant industry linked to the subject area.

We value diversity, all our colleagues and contractors should have diversity orientation and an inclusive approach.
