Exam Invigilators and Readers / Scribes

Larkmead School is seeking applications for the roles of Exams Invigilator / Reader / Scribe to join our busy team. The summer exam season runs during May and June 2019, and we also hold exams at other times during the school year. Successful candidates will need to be observant, have good attention to detail, and work well in the team. Flexibility, patience and a polite manner are a must for the post holders.

The role will more specifically involve working as part of a team to set up exam rooms and closely follow strict rules and regulations, whilst supporting the students. We are seeking both invigilators and readers & scribes to work on a one to one basis with students. All exams team staff have to attend an annual 2-hour training course, prior to the summer exam season. Applicants are welcome to apply for one, or both of the roles.

We can offer a small or large selection of hours, depending on your availability. Many of our existing team members, also have part time jobs or regular commitments.

The hours available are throughout the school week, from 8.20am to 4pm, depending on your availability. Invigilation, reading and scribing at Larkmead is paid at the casual claim rate of £9.66 per hour (inc. holiday pay).

Applications are invited electronically, and are to be submitted by 3.30pm Wednesday 23rd January 2019 to r.dennett@larkmead.oxon.sch.uk.

The outer envelope for written applications should be endorsed with ‘Invigilator, Reader / Scribe Post’ for ease of identification, and they also must be received by the school 3.30pm Wednesday 23rd January 2019.
