Invigilator recruitment

If you are interested in becoming an invigilator at the University, find out what's involved and how to apply. 

The Assessment & Progress Team (A&P) no longer requires schools to provide staff invigilators for assessments.  If a member of staff wishes to invigilate their assessment, they should contact A&P before the start of the assessment period using the email address .


We recruit external people and PhD students to work as invigilators.  Only students on research degree programmes can be employed as invigilators.  If you are a research degree student but are studying any taught modules, you are not eligible due to a conflict of interest.

Successful applicants will be hired as support invigilators. 

Invigilators are usually recruited at the start of the academic session, in September/October.   When recruitment is open the job description and information on how to apply will be available through the University Jobs webpage.


Before you can be allocated any invigilator duties you will have to undertake some training.  Please see the Invigilator Training webpage for more information.
