Exam Invigilators


We are looking to recruit Exam Invigilators for The Portsmouth Academy!

Salary: £8.50 per hour

Hours: Casual Basis

Closing Date 21st April 2019


Ofsted April 2017 – The Portsmouth Academy is a GOOD school with OUTSTANDING leadership and management.


The Thinking Schools Academy Trust is the best performing Multi Academy Trust for KS4 progress


We became a co-educational establishment from September 2017.  Our aim is to transform the life chances of our pupils through our motto of ‘Aspire and Achieve’.


The good behaviour of our students, and collegiate atmosphere amongst staff, makes the Academy a wonderful place to work. We are part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, an expanding family of primary and secondary schools within the Portsmouth area and have recently achieved fully accredited Thinking School status from the University of Exeter.


Our growing academy has an exciting opportunity for Exam Invigilators to support with the busy exam periods. Your presence will ensure the fair and proper conduct of examinations in an environment that enables a student to perform at their best. 


You will assist with setting up of exam venues, checking examination packs, assisting candidates and actively invigilating during examinations.  You will be required to check attendance, record relevant details so good communication, written and verbal are essential.  You may be required to scribe/read for students with special needs.


It is essential that you possess good interpersonal skills and an ability to deal with matters calmly, swiftly and firmly, without being confrontational.  Previous experience in working with secondary school age children would be a distinct advantage as would any previous supervision experience.  Confidentiality inside and outside the workplace is essential, as is the ability to support Academy ethos and vision into the wide community.


Early applications are encouraged and we reserve the right to close the vacancy if suitable candidates are found.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
