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 position:

  • 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.

Important dates

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 testing
  • 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.
