Continually striving for excellence and a strong Grade 2  College, Wigan & Leigh College is well underway on its journey to become Outstanding.  With over 8,000 students and a turnover of £30m, the College is in a strong position to continue to move forward and grow.

The College has distinct ambitions to expand its choice of programmes and support the economic transformation of Wigan and the surrounding areas.  As a growing college we are in a strong position to continue to invest in our campuses with the development of state of the art facilities.

The College has created a community that encourages all students to enhance their learning through wider opportunities and support services; to maximise their achievements and secure progression onto further study, apprenticeships and employment.

Wigan and Leigh College are looking to recruit enthusiastic Exam Invigilators to support our busy Examinations Team.

These roles are being offered in line with fluctuating examination needs across the academic year. They suit individuals with a flexible approach to working hours who are looking for work throughout the year, rather than regular weekly guaranteed hours. Individuals will need to be available during evenings, throughout the year, to meet invigilation needs.

In this role you will:

  • Oversee and supervise examinations (both written and on-screen – a good level of ICT literacy would be advantageous)
  • Ensure that exam board guidelines, security requirements and regulations are adhered to
  • Set up examination rooms as per exam requirements

This role requires an individual with:

  • A good general level of education including English and Maths
  • Strong communication, organisation and customer service skills
  • Initiative and a strong attention to detail

Full training will be provided, however previous experience of invigilating examinations or similar activities would be an advantage.

The College reserves the right to interview for this post should we receive suitable candidates prior to the closing date.  

The College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Employees will, in accordance with statutory guidance, be subject to a comprehensive checking process including references from current and previous employers, health, right to work in the UK, an enhanced DBS check and a further check against the appropriate barred list. To comply with legislation, you are required to obtain a DBS check for your role. We will be asking Protocol National Ltd/Esafeguarding Ltd to undertake this process on our behalf.

The College is only accepting direct applicants for this role, no agency contact is required.

Wigan and Leigh college is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.
