This role is open to general applications and applications from postgraduate research students.

PLEASE NOTE: Although we welcome applications throughout the year, the exams work is seasonal so you may not be contacted about next steps immediately. During busy exam periods it is not possible for us to review applications, so we appreciate your patience during these times. At these busy times of year (Jan-Feb, April-May and Aug-Sept) there may be a significant delay in hearing back from us about your application, so please bear with us. If you have submitted an application, it has been passed for review and you will hear back from us when a decision has been made. Thank you for patience and understanding with this.

The role requires you to provide a professional examination service ensuring a calm environment to give candidates the best possible opportunity to be successful in their exams.

Duties include supervising students taking examinations, preparing exam rooms and distributing and collecting exam papers. The ideal applicant will be highly organised, vigilant and reliable, have excellent attention to detail and have the ability to remain calm under pressure. We are particularly interested in applicants who are able to work flexible daytime hours.

Training will be provided.
