The summer exam period runs from Monday 4th May - Friday 26 th June (excluding half term: Monday 25th May – Friday 29th May). You will need to be available for a substantial number of sessions during the key exam period from Monday 11th May – Friday 12th June.

  • Thursday 4th June (am)
  • Friday 5th June (am)
  • Monday 8th June (am)

If you are not available for these dates, your application may not be successful.

We expect Invigilators to approach the job in a serious and professional manner; punctuality and reliability are essential. In addition, Invigilators need to be able to communicate effectively with people.

The post is paid at a rate of £8.72 per hour (inclusive of holiday pay). Hours will vary depending on the number of examinations and the number of students taking these exams each session.

All Invigilators are required to have an enhanced DBS certificate. The college will arrange this if necessary.
