A thriving sixth form college on the north edge of Brighton.  Varndean has an excellent reputation and draws students from a wide geographic area for both daytime and evening. 

Varndean College is now recruiting to its existing team of exam invigilators to oversee and supervise students during the summer 2018 exam period. As part of our pool of invigilators you may also be called upon at various times of the year to assist us with exam invigilation.

The summer exam period runs from Monday 14th May – Wednesday 27th June (excluding half term Monday 28th May – Friday 1st June). You will need to be available for the key exam periods from Monday 15th May – Friday 16th June. You will work a morning or an afternoon session, or both if you prefer. The crucial dates (when all hands to the pump are required) are:

            Thursday 24th May (am)

            Tuesday 5th June (am)

            Thursday 7th June (am)

            Friday 8th June (am)

            Tuesday 12 June (am)

The role of invigilator involves supervising examinations according to examination board Regulations, distributing question and answer papers, ensuring that the students enter and leave exam halls calmly, and dealing with student queries. Invigilators are expected to approach the job in a serious and professional manner with emphasis on punctuality and reliability. They should also have the ability to communicate effectively with people.

The post is paid at a rate of 8.03 per hour (inclusive of holiday pay). Hours will vary depending on the number of examinations and the number of students taking these exams each day.

All invigilators are required to have an enhanced criminal records check (DBS disclosure). If you have not got one of these, the college will process one for you.

If you are selected to join the team, you will be required to attend a mandatory paid training/induction session on either Friday 20th April 2018 or Wednesday 25th April at 2.30 pm.
