The Occupational Psychology Services (OPS) team is part of the Government Skills & Curriculum Unit (GSCU) in Civil Service Human Resources (CSHR). It’s our job to deliver best practice occupational psychology insights and psychometric solutions to support the future of the Civil Service. This keeps us at the leading edge of assessment and selection techniques and digital developments and ensures an evolving candidate journey.
You’ll create psychometrically robust assessments and the psychometric aspects of integration with our main candidate management systems. This will include everything from developing new content and conducting subject matter expert reviews to content trialling and implementing test products for your customers.
Managing the day-to-day availability and integrity of the test player and analytical function, you’ll work alongside a multi-disciplinary digital team in an agile project management environment and contribute to developing best professional practice.
As well as a degree in a numerate discipline with strong statistics/psychometrics background, you’ll need graduate training and experience in psychometrics, measurement theory, test development, validation, item bias and standard setting. You’ll also be well versed in psychometric methods, modern statistical and psychometric theories, measurement principles, test design, and validation.
We’re looking for expertise in test development and psychometric methods, along with a good grasp of data analysis for CTT and IRT test analysis. Experience in managing large-scale research and testing programmes is also essential. If you have a Masters in either Educational Measurement & Statistics, Quantitative Research Methods, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, Psychometrics, or highly-related discipline, so much the better.
