Qualifications Executive

Established in 1997, ARB is the statutory regulator of architects in the UK, here to protect the public and maintain trust in the profession. We maintain the Architect Register, a tool that can be used to confirm that architects are registered in the UK. We also set the UK standards required to join the Register and ensure only appropriate applicants from the UK and overseas are admitted. We set and enforce the professional standards expected of UK architects and take action against those who illegally refer to themselves as an architect. We endeavour to deliver our duties with consistency, integrity, objectivity, openness and transparency.

The successful applicant will be a key member of the Qualifications Team, helping to deliver a rigorous cycle of quality assurance for educational standards and the prescription (recognition) of qualifications required to become an architect in the UK. This includes processing applications for prescriptions from a variety of institutions, drafting comprehensive advisory notes, seeking clarifications from schools and presenting decision-critical papers to the board for approval. You will also contribute to the continuous improvement and development of the prescription process and our workflow systems.

Applicants will require excellent analytical skills with the ability to interpret and report complex data; show highly developed interpersonal skills and excellent attention to detail; be able to confidently present evidence-based assessments and support conclusions on paper and in discussions with peers, senior management and external partners.

If you wish to apply for the role, please ensure you have downloaded the full application pack from the ARB website and follow the instructions on what you need to submit to apply.
