Kings Priory School wishes to appoint an Examination Invigilator on a casual basis to cover examination periods throughout the academic year. This will include invigilation for external GCSE and A-level examinations in addition to internal examinations.
The successful candidate will be required to work as part of a team committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for our young people and be willing to support students through the provision, supervision and monitoring of examinations, whilst enforcing strict exam conditions at all times.
