We are looking to appoint Invigilators and Scribes to expand our team of examination invigilators who are responsible for supervising internal/external examinations throughout the year.

The role will entail implementing the strict procedures and regulations set out by examination boards and to ensure the proper conduct of students during examinations.

Previous experience is not required as training will be provided, however the successful candidates will have strong inter-personal skills, high expectations of all students and be able to work well within a team.
