  • There is a new Global Operating Model for Exams being implemented across the business and this role will be key to ensuring delivery of our exams operations at test centre level, working with new systems and processes and ensuring that new ways of working are taken up and adhered to.  
  • Making a positive contribution to new working culture aligned to country and regional objectives for enhanced work practice.
  • Plan and organise work to avoid issues and ensure delivery at maximum capacity in order to meet business demand.
  • Help resolve on-the-spot problems to ensure positive Test Day experience for internal and external customers.
