Due to expanding student numbers, an exciting opportunity has arisen for the post of Deputy Examination Officer & Lead Invigilator.

This would suit a candidate looking to train and develop their skill and knowledge of running a highly successful examination office. Glenmoor and Winton Academies are looking to appoint a professional, highly motivated, confident individual for this role.

The role

The Deputy Examination Officer will be responsible for the organisation and leadership of the invigilation team in the first instance.

The role will provide opportunity for the successful candidate to train in the organisation and administration of the examinations office, to have the opportunity to work with the EAA Officer and learn EAA requirements and become proficient in the application of JCQ regulations.

About You

The successful candidate must therefore have:

  • good administrative skills,
  • be confident in the exam hall context and,
  • be highly efficient and organised

You will need to be confident, articulate and able to deal sensitively with a variety of situations with students, teachers and examination invigilators.

Previous invigilation experience will be an expectation.

Glenmoor and Winton Academies are part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could.

Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
