Reality Check

It will be necessary for the post holder to quickly assimilate information on several distinct qualification suites, and to understand the differences in the management and delivery of these.

Results Resolution is based in South Yorkshire, but many of our key stakeholders are based in the London office. Clear, effective communication channels are essential to the success of the department.

In order to keep up with the customer and business demands, the processes are rapidly changing within operations.

Due to the nature of the examination process, the volume of work varies through the year. A key challenge of this is working on multiple projects at a time.

The nature of the work undertaken is public facing and of a sensitive nature. The post holder will need to demonstrate a professional and commercial outlook.

  • Working within a regulated framework
  • Working to tight, and immoveable, deadlines
  • Attention to detail
  • Attention to detail even with repetitive tasks
  • Flexibility of working patterns during peak periods
  • Reacting positively to change
  • Adapting to the challenges created by the introduction of new qualifications or working methods
  • Adapting to multiple/ different IT systems
  • Supporting various stakeholders from different teams
  • Influencing and working closely with colleagues
  • Restrictions on annual leave during peak periods
