Be part of a 700-strong community of musicians

If you are looking for a freelance role that supports developing musicians, complements a portfolio career, and lets you travel, then, music examining could be just the thing for you.

Hear what it’s like to be an ABRSM examiner from our Chief Examiner John Holmes:

What we look for
  • Musicians with a strong educational background
  • Willingness to travel across South East Asia (our biggest international tours take place in Hong Kong, Malaysia, China and Singapore, often in groups with others)*
  • Experience and qualities to cope and react positively in a range of situations
  • Experience of working with children
  • Competent but not necessarily performing pianist 
  • Time commitment of at least five weeks in groups of at least two weeks at a time**

*Covid restrictions permitting

** We are currently unable to set a specific availability requirement whilst ABRSM examining activity is reduced owing to pandemic-related restrictions, but the time frames here are given as an indication of our likely expectation

What you'll enjoy
  • Comprehensive training and ongoing professional development if you're successful (unique for a freelance role in music education)
  • Competitive pay, with the potential to work as much as you want
  • Dedicated help desk for any queries or support
  • International SOS support when working overseas for any medical or security issues
