No specific qualifications are needed, and if you are looking for extra income this summer, then working as an invigilator could be the perfect solution.

Working as an invigilator: What’s involved?

When working as an invigilator, your role involves ensuring the integrity of exams by monitoring students during testing. This entails verifying their identities, enforcing exam rules, and addressing any issues or disruptions that may arise.

It is important to carry a professional demeanour throughout the process, remaining calm and paying attention to the environment to ensure that the exams run smoothly.

What are the benefits of being an invigilator?

Flexible work: Working as an invigilator offers unparalleled flexibility, allowing you to choose when you work. This fits perfectly with those looking for work alongside studying, for retirees seeking to stay active, or for someone with a full-time job looking for supplementary income.

Local work: With the number of opportunities available for invigilating around the UK, it means that you can find work close-by to where you live. This suits those unable to travel far, perhaps without a car, saving time and cutting costs in the process.

Part-time work: Invigilating is the ideal solution for people looking to find part-time work. With the rate of pay often being between £11 and £15 per hour, with some exams lasting between four to five hours, it is the perfect role to earn extra income.

Extra experience: The skills required for invigilating, such as having a professional manner and a high standard of attention to detail, are transferable across so many industries, meaning it is great experience to have listed on your CV to help when looking for other roles in the future.
