Testing and Assessment Employment Opportunities

Page Navigation



This page lists current and recent employment opportunities related to testing and assessment. Some of the jobs are in testing or examining companies, some with government agencies, while others are for teachers or university faculty with a specialisation or interest in testing. The listings cover test development, academic/research and test administration roles. Many positions, but certainly not all, require a specific interest in language testing.

This web page is updated daily.

It is operated in conjunction with the International Language Testing Association (ILTA) as a service to members.


  1. We are only able to list positions that are advertised on the internet by major recruitment companies and newspapers. If you are searching for a job you should also consult your local press and career development services.
  2. Some job descriptions, particularly in computing, contain strings and keywords identical to those in language testing/educational assessment. Although every attempt has been made to filter these advertisements out, some will inevitably get through.
