Job Description

ICAEW is recruiting new markers for the Advanced Level Case Study marking team.

The Case Study is the four-hour final exam taken by ACA students. It aims to test candidates’ professional skills in the context of business issues, building on the knowledge and skills acquired during success at the Certificate Level and Professional Level examinations. Candidates are given 40 – 50 pages of Advance Information six weeks before the examination to ‘set the scene’ (who they are and the area they are working in). During the exam they must assess the four requirements given in the exam, taking into account approximately 15 pages of new information provided.

Case Study markers will generally:

  • Be qualified with a CCAB body or the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT), with at least three years’ post qualification experience

and must:

  • Be able to listen to, and diligently apply, training
  • Be able to mark at one session a year at least, and devote approximately 11 days (including weekends) to marking per session

  • Have access to, and ability to use a PC/laptop, the Internet and Microsoft Office in the security of your own home. Markers are expected to mark papers online. Computer specification available on application. (On the selection day marking will be carried out on paper).
  • Not be involved with tuition of the Case Study

A marker selection day will be held on Saturday 21 September 2019 in Milton Keynes.

If you are interested in becoming a Case Study marker and meet the criteria above, please apply with your CV and a covering note describing why you are interested by 9 September 2019.
