As Exam Invigilator, your role will be to provide support to the examination process, ensuring the fair and proper conduct of examinations whilst enabling students to perform at their best.
Duties will include collecting papers and setting out rooms beforehand, giving out instructions and supervising during examinations and collecting and collating papers at the end. At times you may be asked to act as a reader, scribe or prompt, to supervise students with examination clashes or to assist with other examinations administration.
Good communication and organisational skills are important, along with an ability to be accurate and attentive to detail. You must be able to develop a sound understanding of examination rules and regulations set by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ)
Full training will be given, so previous experience of invigilation is not essential, but ideally you will need to have worked in an education environment or with young people previously.
The main summer examination period runs from mid-May to the end of June with working times normally falling between 8.30am to 5.00pm weekdays. We also hold some external examinations throughout the year with significant examination series in November and January. Invigilation demands vary from day to day according to the examinations timetable and we have a bank of invigilators to call on so there is no expectation that you are needed to work all day every day during the examination period.
If successful, you will be put on the College’s approved list for Invigilators as soon as you are available and once relevant recruitment checks have been completed. The next examination period commences Monday 13th May 2019, however there will be an expectation to attend the relevant training & inductions prior to this start date.
Employment is on a casual basis, which means that there is no obligation on the College to offer you work and no obligation on you to accept work, though there is the expectation that staff on the invigilators’ list will have a high level of availability during the main examination period.
Closing Date: Midnight, Thursday 14th February 2019
