Examination Invigilators

We are seeking to appoint additional invigilators to support in the supervision and administration of internal and external examinations at GCSE and A Level. Ideally candidates should be able to command respect from adolescent boys whilst being able to interact well, and work with our current team of invigilators under the direction of the school’s Examination Officer. Invigilators are expected to come into the school when available on an ad hoc basis during the examination season, plus attend training events throughout the year.

The successful candidates will be required to have excellent organisational and communication skills and be able to ensure a calm and orderly examination hall for all participants, whilst working within the strict procedures required by the external examination boards. There are some administration tasks which must be completed by invigilators for each examination. Experience is desirable however training will be provided to the successful candidates.

Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service including a check of the children’s barred list.

The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are spent unless they are protected under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.

A detailed job description and person specification is available to download along with an application form, or, alternatively, can be obtained directly from the School.

As we are seeking a number of additional invigilators there is no deadline for application however interviews will take place on a first come, first served basis, so early application is encouraged.

To be considered for this post, please complete a formal application document and forward this via email to 

The King’s School is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful candidates will be expected to follow school safeguarding procedures and promote the welfare of students.
