Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) is an independent health education charity and the world’s oldest public health body. Our vision is that every community, workplace and individual should have the opportunity to optimise their own health and wellbeing. We are also a leading Ofqual regulated Awarding Organisation in the field of public health, providing a range of qualifications aimed at protecting and improving the public’s health. 

RSPH is recruiting for a Director of Qualifications to lead our Qualifications Department and deliver our 70+ regulated qualifications to over 500 approved Centres nationwide. This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to progress their career in a dynamic and diverse organisation. 

Reporting to the Chief Executive, you will lead a strong qualifications team in the development, delivery and maintenance of a diverse range of public-health related qualifications.  You will also be the Responsible Officer for the RSPH Awarding Organisation, serving as the main point of contact between RSPH and our regulators; Ofqual, Qualifications Wales, and CCEA. The Director of Qualifications is also a member of the Executive Management Team of RSPH 

Applicants should have substantial relevant experience in an Awarding, assessment, or educational / training role and a good understanding of the regulatory environment in which Awarding Organisations operate.  

We offer 25 days paid holiday plus bank holidays, contributory pension scheme, Bupa cash plan, life assurance, season ticket loan and cycle to work scheme. 

The position is based in our central London offices, but as a result of Covid 19 we have adopted hybrid working arrangements which include home working, and this is likely to continue post pandemic.
