Welcome to Ofsted’s dedicated careers site.

Raising standards, improving lives

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. We regulate and inspect to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.

We recently changed the way we operate to ensure that inspections – and our inspection evidence base – have the greatest impact on outcomes for children and young people, parents and carers, adult learners and employers.

This website is our dedicated careers site where you can find out more about Ofsted, what it would be like working for us, view our current job vacancies and find out how to apply.

We hope it inspires you to join us.
