We are seeking flexible and committed individuals to join our team of examination invigilators.
As 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) (https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/ice---instructions-for-conducting-examinations) and have the confidence to enforce these. However, it is equally important that you are able to empathise with students and deal with their concerns sensitively, in what is a stressful and important time for them. The ability to deal calmly and professionally with unexpected or emergency situations is key.
The invigilation and examination team is led by the Examinations Officer, Kieren Moore, and supported by the Examinations Assistant, Daniel Pledger. Full training will be given, so previous experience of invigilation is not essential, but 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.
The successful candidate will be appointed to point 15 of the College’s support staff pay spine, which is paid at £9.38 per hour, including payment for pro-rata holiday entitlement (based on a full-time, full-year salary of £16,002 p.a.).
Closing Date: Midnight, Monday 26th March 2018.
Interviews are provisionally arranged for Thursday 12th April 2018.
