The Association of Commonwealth Universities is managing the Assessment Hub on behalf of Capita as part of the Turing Scheme. The Assessment Hub is responsible for the receipt and checking of all Turing applications, the evaluation of all eligible applications, the appeals process and for making recommendations to the Project Advisory Board on projects to be funded. We estimate that there may be more than 400 Turing applications to assess.

Applicants will hold a track record of working with or leading evaluation or assessment for local, national or international agencies and an ability or track record of leading teams.
- 21 Assessors
We are looking for a pool of assessors to undertake assessments. Assessors will be responsible for evaluating Turing applications against the agreed criteria. Each assessor will work within a sector team supported by a Senior Assessor.
