Put your TEFL/TESOL experience to best use examining English language candidates around Europe.

English language exams from Trinity College London are valued and respected the world over. Our assessments are available in over 60 countries, and every one is carefully designed to test real-world English rigorously and reliably. Our panel of examiners plays an absolutely critical part in delivering that rigour and reliability, which is why we look for a very specific set of skills for the role.

Who are our examiners?
Independent, self-employed freelancer examiners. Our examiners are qualified TEFL/TESOL practitioners with 5+ years’ recent experience in the field. To join them, you must be flexible enough to commit to travelling throughout Europe for a minimum of 21 days this year, including two complete weeks in May and June. You can be up to 75 years old and must have the relevant police clearance to examine candidates aged 5+. If English isn’t your first language, you must be qualified to CEFR C2 level.

What will you do?
You’ll assess candidates of all ages in their English speaking and listening exams. You will be given full training and ongoing support on how to deliver and access our tests.

Why work with us?

This is a brief work commitment with a major impact. By delivering our highly regarded assessments, you’ll be upholding a world-leading assessment brand, while the experience you gain in just 21 days will be extremely rewarding, both professionally and personally. You will also enjoy good rates of pay in a flexible but supportive freelance arrangement.


Note: all examiners and markers are required to examine C2 CEFR level candidates and must be able to communicate at this level themselves in order to carry out accurate assessments. The role description lists the qualifications that we accept.
