About Cockshut Hill School

Cockshut Hill School provides a friendly and supportive working environment, valuing each individual.  We are committed to providing our students with the best education they need to become confident, articulate and successful adults of the future.  We are one of the few schools in Birmingham to receive The Rights Respecting Schools, UNICEF UK Gold Award, for successfully embedding children’s rights throughout the school in our practices and ethos.  This is an exciting time for our school as we strive to improve and we are proud of our commitment to teaching and learning – our school motto is ‘Nothing But the Best’.


We are seeking to recruit casual exam invigilators who can promote a supportive atmosphere for all of our students during their examinations. Under the guidance of the Examinations Officer you will start, oversee and finish examinations as necessary. You will be assisting with the preparation of the examination venue, completion of relevant paperwork and the monitoring and management of conduct during internal and external examinations.You will provide access arrangements in terms of invigilating and reading and scribing for pupils who require additional help. Candidates must have good communication, reading and writing skills.


Hours will vary, with the bulk of GCSE examinations falling in May and June. However additional exams take place throughout the year so candidates must be able to commit to dates in advance.


An ideal candidate will:

  • work within and adhere to strict guidelines
  • be accurate and pay attention to detail
  • be flexible, reliable and committed to pupil achievement
  • have effective communication skills
  • be able to work independently and as part of a team
  • be confident and have a reassuring presence to candidates in exam rooms.

Experience is not required, as training will be provided, although applicants will be asked to declare if they have invigilated previously and whether they have any current maladministration/malpractice sanctions applied to them.


Cockshut Hill is a developing and improving school and this is an exciting opportunity to support that journey of school improvement.
