Hours: Variable
Closing date: 28th January at 12:00 pm
Interview date: TBC

Varndean College is now recruiting to its existing team of Exam Invigilators, who will oversee and supervise students during the summer 2020 exam period. Invigilation opportunities also arise at other times during the year.

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. Generally, you will work either during a morning or an afternoon session, occasionally both if we are very busy. The crucial dates, when we will need nearly everybody, are:

  • Tuesday 19th May (am)
  • Tuesday 2nd June (am)
  • 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.

Invigilating involves supervising examinations according to the examination boards’ regulations, distributing question and answer papers, ensuring that the students enter and leave exam rooms calmly and dealing with student queries. 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.

If you are selected to join the team, you will be required to attend a mandatory, paid training/induction session on either Friday 24th April or Wednesday 29th April at 2.30 pm.
