The University of Reading (UoR) Examinations team organises over 50,000 candidate sittings per year for approximately 12,000 undergraduate and taught postgraduate students. During the main examinations period (April to June) examinations are held in multiple exam venues across the University’s Whiteknights and London Road campuses and includes large exam venues which can seat several hundred candidates. A team of around 200 invigilators is required (consisting of Senior Invigilators, General Invigilators and Special/Complex Arrangement invigilators) to ensure that the examination timetable runs smoothly and UoR’s examination procedures are strictly adhered to, at all times and in all venues.
Applications are invited from those interested in joining the UoR’s team of invigilators for the 2019 main examination period (May-June), resits (August) and some January examinations. Due to the nature of the work involved, students currently registered on taught postgraduate or undergraduate programmes at the UoR are not eligible to apply. The post is open to Postgraduate (PhD) students and non-students recruited from outside the University.
The engagement and arrangements relating to invigilators are the responsibility of the Examinations Team, primarily the Examinations Manager (Operations) and the Examinations Manager (Special Arrangements). This Examinations team has ten members of staff and is responsible for the general administration and final marks processing for all undergraduate and post graduate taught students.
Successful candidates will be required to register for the Campus Jobs Service to facilitate the completion of online timesheets and payment, for further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
