What skills and experience we're looking for

Casual Worker opportunity

We are seeking to expand and build up our bank of ad hoc Invigilators for examinations which take place throughout the year. These include public exams in May and June (i.e. A Level and GCSE exams) as well as University Admissions Tests, mock exams, Maths Challenges and end of year exams.

Public examinations are held in the morning and afternoon and the role of the invigilator is to ensure that these are administered according to the JCQ regulations. Mocks and end of year exams have an additional mid-morning slot and these are also run according to JCQ regulations so that students become comfortable with sitting exams in a formal setting as soon as they join the school.

This is therefore a key role within the school and successful candidates must have excellent communication and organisational skills as well as an eye for detail. Experience of invigilation is not required for the standard invigilator role as training in the role and duties of an invigilator will be provided. We also welcome applications from those with previous invigilation experience as we would like to widen our team of lead invigilators who take full responsibility for specific exam rooms leading and supervising teams of standard invigilators within them.
