Examinations Officer – job share (2 days per week) with the existing exams officer who is stepping down from full time to 3 days per week.
This is a key role in school. The administration of exams is complex in schools with public exams at year 11 and year 13 on which the futures of the students often depend. There are very precise regulations covering external exams that need to be adhered to. Exam entries need to be accurate, plans for exams both internal and external made in good time with excellent communication needed with students, their parents and subject heads too. The team of exam invigilators needs to be managed.
Julie Pelling has been the Examinations Officer here for a long time and does a brilliant job. She is now seeking to reduce her hours and we are looking for the role to be done as a job share, with the new sharer doing two days and the existing post holder doing three days. The job has some times of the year that are more pressurised than others but the post is advertised as 42 weeks per year, which would include all the normal school term days and 3 weeks of duties especially around the date of the publication of public exam results in mid-August.
We have the capacity to train the person appointed in all the specific duties. Much of the exams entry and results work uses computer software (we will be using SIMS from September 2018) and the person appointed must be confident with the use of computers.
The tasks within this post often have very precise deadlines and the ability to work accurately under pressure is an important quality to have.
We have a small team of highly able staff in our support team at the school and they like working in a slightly smaller school, with low staff turn-over. Please consider applying for this role. We anticipate a September start date.
Our salaries take account of local authority pay ranges and we still use Sutton’s job evaluation method to ensure we are offering fair pay for our roles. The full time salary range for this post would be £25,934 -£30,291 which equates to £9,180 - £10,722 for 2 days per week, 42 working weeks per year.
