Temporary Medway Test roles
Do you have good customer service skills and experience
with children? Medway Council is looking for invigilators on a
temporary basis for the annual Medway Test.
The Medway Test is held each September for
pupils wishing to apply to attend grammar schools in Medway.
We are currently recruiting for two types of
- Officer: £7.89 per hour
- Senior Officer: £9.97 per hour
As it is essential that there is enough staff to deliver the test,
a number of contingency staff will also be required for up to seven
hours per session.
Please ensure that you provisionally book
annual leave/keep the following dates free:
- Tuesday, 5 July – Mandatory training
- Tuesday, 13 September – main test date
- Wednesday, 14 September – main test date
- Saturday, 17 September – main test date
- W/c 12 September (dates TBC) - Special arrangements
- W/c 19 September (dates TBC - Special arrangements testing
If you are not able to attend either of the training sessions, it
is vital that you make a note on the application form in order that
we can try to make alternative arrangements.
Where possible candidates will be mapped to
their local schools, but this is not always possible. As we cannot
pay for your journey, please let us know on the application form if
there are any restrictions on where you can travel.
This is a great opportunity for staff to be
involved in a really important part of Medway’s school system. We
test over 2,500 children every year and your role in this is vital
to ensure that the Medway Test arrangements are delivered in a
fair, consistent and objective way at all the test venues and on
all the test dates.
If you would like to have an
informal discussion with the recruiting manager phone Catherine
Grace on 01634 332293.
