AM2 Examiner (Qualified Technician) 

– Gloucester

– Salary from £26,000 per annum

– Monday – Friday 

If you’re a qualified electrician with a knack for sharing your knowledge with apprentices, apply now to use your electrical experience in a new field.

Main Duties and Responsibilities include:

  • The AM2 practical assessment is the end test for all electrical apprentices as they complete their training. We’re looking for an experienced electrician to assess candidates as they complete this challenging final part of their apprenticeship.
  • Each week you’ll assess apprentices as they complete installation, fault finding and testing following the standards set nationally by the AM2 awarding body. After providing a brief one-to-one induction, you’ll observe the process, marking the installation on completion and dismantling the work to prepare for the next candidate.  There’s a clear marking guide and procedures to work to, ensuring fairness across the board
  • In a typical week you’ll assess up to six candidates, with some completing the full test and others resitting individual sections of it.  When you’re not actively observing candidates, marking the bays or stripping them out, you’ll be responsible for checking stock levels for AM2 materials and ordering replacements.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Excellent working knowledge of electrical installation, fault finding and testing
  • An approachable, supportive and patient demeanour, suitable for putting candidates at ease
  • Self-motivated and focused on getting the job done well, even when unsupervised
  • Keen to work to established procedures but flexible enough to adapt when necessary
  • Integrity and professionalism
  • Basic IT skills


  • Applicants will need relevant industry qualifications (NVQ3 or equivalent) plus at least five years ‘on the tools’.  If you don’t already hold a level 3 testing qualification, the Assessor Award and a first aid qualification, you’ll need to achieve these too so we’ll arrange and fund this training as part of your induction process.
