What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to expand our friendly team of Examination Invigilators team and invite you to join us. You will work as part of a team of invigilators who will ensure exams are carried out according to JCQ regulations (a national examination council who oversee all national external exams in schools).

You will be employed on a casual basis to supervise students taking both internal and external examinations throughout the school year. The hours are variable depending upon the exam timetable and applicants need to be able to offer flexible hours during the school day. The majority of hours worked will be in May and June during the main exam season, so applicants must be able to commit to being available during most or all of this period. There will be further opportunities to work at other times during the school year, e.g mock exams in November, January and July.

Successful candidates will work as part of a pool of invigilators and should possess good interpersonal skills, with an ability to deal with matters calmly, swiftly and assertively, and must be reliable, punctual and flexible. We are also looking for individuals who can work alongside our SEN students to help with their additional needs for exams, such as to act as readers/scribes if required.

If you are passionate about students' development and outcomes, and enthusiastic to take on a new challenge, then we would like to meet you.
