With the introduction of our new exam structure in 2019, we want to strengthen our examining teams and are seeking specialists in the following areas who would like to join us:

  • Indirect Taxation
  • Taxation of Owner-Managed Businesses
  • Taxation of Individuals
  • Human Capital Taxes
  • Inheritance Tax, Trust and Estates
  • Corporation Tax

Applications are invited from those with at least three years’ post qualification experience who can offer the skills required to help to maintain and enhance the standard of our examinations. The key requirements for the role are:

  • The ability to keep to the tight timetable for the preparation and review of the exam questions and for the marking of scripts
  • Strong technical skills
  • Good written communications skills
  • The ability to work as a member of a team

You would be part of a team responsible for drafting, reviewing and marking one of the Advisory examination papers and for ensuring that the examinations are of the highest possible quality. The time commitment varies from paper to paper, but most examiners continue to work full-time and carry out CIOT work at weekends and in the evenings. Typically, an examiner in an Advisory team will be part of a team of four and will write and review half of a paper once a year and will mark questions they have set. If appointed you will be required to attend training on the afternoon of 19 March 2019 and an Examiners’ Day on 20 March 2019.

The draft 2019 syllabus and recent exam papers can be found here:
