Cambridge Assessment employees

Put simply, the most frequent words our people use to describe working at Cambridge Assessment are friendly, enjoyable and challenging.

Not enough to convince you yet? Well, here are just some of the things we believe help contribute to this view:

Interesting and rewarding work with a conscience

Whether you are building new IT systems, supporting our customers or developing one of our new qualifications, every person here is helping to make a difference. Being part of the education of eight million candidates, in over 170 countries around the world every year, means we are all helping to open doors to a better future every day.

Our values

  • Collaborative
  • Responsible
  • Innovative

We expect our people to demonstrate these values in all areas of their work. Whilst there are other things that are important too, we aim for these values to be at the heart of everything we do. And we believe actions speak louder than words when it comes to demonstrating this.

Great people

We think we’re great people to work with, but then maybe we’re biased! What we are certain about though is that if you join us you’ll be surrounded by talented people with diverse backgrounds and skills, working together in a friendly and supportive way.

Real development opportunities

We have ambitious plans to become the leading world authority on assessment. It matters to us that people rise to bigger challenges and reach their potential, so as your ambitions and interests grow there will be opportunities to move around the business and gain new skills.

We’ll expect you to take responsibilities for fulfilling your own potential, and we will provide you with the training and development opportunities to manage this.


We’re proud of our 150 years heritage and the expertise that it has given us, as well as our global reputation for quality. Our qualifications are recognised by universities, governments, ministries, educational institutions and employers around the world.

Locations and facilities

Did you know that we are not only based in Cambridge? We also have a site in Coventry, as well as a number of other smaller offices around the UK and overseas. We’re continuing to invest in new facilities and infrastructure across the Group so that our people can enjoy bright and airy offices equipped with up-to-date technology.
