Senior Assessor – Which? Trusted Trader
12 month Fixed term contract
Pay = £30,000 per annum

We have been rigorously testing products and services for over 50 years, now we're doing the same for traders. Just like the Which? Best Buy award, our Which? Trusted trader icon highlights the best traders out there.
Every Which? Trusted trader has been assessed and checked by Which? trading standards professionals, before being endorsed. So whatever you are looking for, whether it's a builder, plumber, gardener or mechanic, we'll help you find the right trader.
We’re not afraid to fail those who do not make the grade. Due to the high demands of the assessment, 1 in 4 traders do not pass. Only those who meet our high standards are credited with Which? Trusted trader status.
We're really proud to be working a number of highly regarded Trade Associations including the NICEIC and Worcester Accredited Installers.
