Role overview

British Council Morocco is recruiting new personnel to be trained as IELTS Part time Examiners for Rabat, Casa, Marrakech and Tangiers. This is an ideal professional development opportunity for existing English language teaching professionals in the schools and university sectors in Morocco. 

What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System is one of the most recognised and highly respected examinations worldwide and is owned by the British Council, IDP Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment. The examination measures English language proficiency for people who wish to study, work or live in a country where English is used as the main language of communication

We are providing the opportunity for appropriately-qualified applicants to train to become IELTS speaking examiners and to join our existing team of examiners already based in Morocco.

It is expected that all successful examiner applicants will train to be speaking examiners. Training sessions will take place over 1.5 days, including examiner certification, and will be scheduled towards the end of September.

Qualifications & Experience:

  • An undergraduate or Master’s degree or a qualification or certified equivalence.
  • English language proficiency equal to band 9 in the Speaking part of the IELTS test. 
  • A recognized qualification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or a recognized equivalent as part of a recognized university award programme.
  • At least 3 years’ full time (or the equivalent part-time) relevant ESOL teaching experience (minimum one year post-certificate level qualification). The majority of this teaching experience must be with young adult/ adult students (16 years and over).
  • The required professional attributes and interpersonal skills. (See Role profile) 

Successful applicants will ideally be based in Rabat, Casablanca, Marrakesh or Tangiers.  

Applicants who do not fulfil all of the above recruitment criteria cannot be considered for shortlisting.

Right to Work

Applicants need to have a pre-existing right to live and work in Morocco. We cannot obtain a work or residence permit for you if you don’t have the right to work in Morocco and we are unable to employ applicants beyond the retirement age (i.e. 60 years in Morocco).

The British Council is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and is keen to reflect diversity of UK society at every level within the organisation. We welcome applications from all sections of the community. In line with the British Council’s Child Protection policy, any appointment is contingent on thorough checks.
