BSB question writers and syllabus team member vacancies

We are seeking to expand our pool of question writers for Professional Ethics. We are also seeking a syllabus team member for Professional Ethics.

We welcome applications from legal academics (including those working at BPTC providers), practising barristers and qualified solicitors to join our question writing team. We are seeking a barrister to join the syllabus team. Applicants must be qualified to practise in England and Wales. Applicants may apply for both roles, but if you are appointed to the syllabus team you would be precluded from question writing.

The fees are:

Question writing: £300 per accepted short answer question and mark scheme

Syllabus team:      £308 per day

If you would like further details and job descriptions, please contact Natasha Ribeiro, Examinations Manager by email:

Applications can be made by emailing your CV and a short covering letter, stating which role(s) you are interested in applying for, and whether you have previous experience.

The deadline for applications for both roles is Thursday 7 November 2019.

Interviews for the syllabus team member will take place on Tuesday 12 November 2019.
