The school are recruiting Exam Invigilators to increase our pool of staff available to cover the internal and external examinations offered by the school.  These may be conducted on or off-site, depending on the school’s requirements and must be run in accordance with the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) regulations and the school’s own policies and procedures.

The role is vital in helping with the organisation and running the examinations and applicants should be available to work flexible hours between 8.00am and 6.00pm, as requested. 

Exam Invigilators are responsible for ensuring they are totally familiar with the JCQ rules and regulations for the conducting of examinations, checking that the examination room is set up correctly; preparing and clearing the room and completion of any relevant paperwork.  It is expected that an Exam Invigilator remains vigilant at all times and is able to routinely patrol the exam room to minimise the risk of exam malpractice.

In addition, duties may include reading and scribing for students who have access arrangements.  Candidates are expected to have GCSE Grade C in English Language and Mathematics or an equivalent, as a minimum to perform this role.

It would be expected that any successful candidates attend training and update sessions relevant to their role on at least an annual basis.

Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.
