Working With Us

In September 2008 we joined the Harris Federation, a not-for-profit charity with 25 years of experience in education. In joining the Harris Federation, we have become part of a family of more than forty happy and highly successful primary, secondary and sixth form providers in schools across London.

We pride ourselves in creating a supportive community where our students are offered the best educational experience in order to develop confidence, self-belief and self-drive.

Main Areas of Responsibility

You will support the Exams Officer with the day-to-day operation of examination venues and other examination processes, with activities including:

  • Assisting with setting-up examination venues by laying out stationery, equipment and examination papers
  • Assisting candidates prior to the start of examinations
  • Ensuring that candidates do not talk once inside examination venues
  • Invigilating during examinations, dealing with queries raised by candidates and dealing with irregularities
  • Checking attendance during examinations
  • Recording details of late arrivals
  • Escorting candidates from venues during the examinations and supervising candidates outside examination venues
  • Collecting and collating scripts at the end of the examination
  • Assisting with the preparation of script envelopes
  • Supervising candidates leaving examination venues, ensuring that candidates do not remove equipment or stationery from the venue without authorisation and that they leave venues in an orderly and quiet manner
  • Assisting with the packing of examination papers, stationery and equipment before examinations, and the delivery to and from venues as appropriate
  • Assisting with the preparation of seating plans

What We are Looking For

For this role, you will need:

  • Access to an email account so invigilation schedules can be arranged with the Examinations Officer
  • A positive interest in young people and their education
  • The ability to be flexible
  • Accuracy and a high level of attention to detail
  • Confident communication skills
  • A firm but fair attitude
  • The ability to work well under pressure
  • Physical fitness appropriate to tasks required (exam papers can be heavy in bulk, and there is a lot of walking involved)

Our people are at the heart of our success. We have developed a strong culture of collaboration and best practice, with professional development and career planning at its centre. We invest in our staff with support, coaching, mentoring, and a wide range of top-quality training programmes delivered at every level.
