Exam Invigilators

Salary:           £10 per hour

Hours: Working hours will be variable depending on examination requirements, but will normally be between 8:30am and 3:00pm.

Broadwater School are seeking Exam Invigilators and Scribers for Exams starting in January 2019

The Invigilator’s Role

An invigilator is the person in the examination room responsible for conducting the exam. They have "a key role in upholding the integrity of the external examination/assessment process".

Invigilators should:

  • Ensure all candidates have an equal opportunity to demonstrate their abilities
  • Ensure the security of the examination beforehand, during and afterwards
  • Prevent possible candidate malpractice
  • Prevent possible administrative failures


Invigilators must be familiar with the instructions outlined by the examining board. They must give their full attention to conducting the exam properly and inform the head of the centre if they have any concerns about the exam process.

Students who require additional support on a one-to-one basis may need to sit their exam separately to other students. The role of invigilator can be combined with the role of prompter, reader and/or scribe. Where a candidate is accommodated separately, an independent invigilator is needed if the student requires:

  • An oral language modifier
  • A practical assistant
  • A reader/computer reader
  • Scribe/speech recognition technology

These positions offer flexibility through the exam period and is a fantastic way to gain experience in schools.


Important Notice: In order to apply for the above position all applicants must be eligible to work in the UK. Safeguarding, quality and professionalism is at the heart of what we do. Applicants are required to attend a face to face interview, have reference checks and an enhanced DBS disclosure check.
