Confirmation of Appointments: If you meet the specific requirements for the role that you have applied for, we will contact you as soon as possible after 19 February 2018 to confirm this, and will advise you of the date that you should attend the appropriate selection and training session(s).

Right to Work Checks: Anyone working at the LSE requires a right to work check. The check is conducted by HR and should be completed prior to your attendance at your selection/training session.

Types of roles

There are three different types of invigilators at LSE: 

Assistant Invigilators
These roles assist the Senior Invigilator by remaining alert to candidates’ needs and possible instances of academic misconduct. Other duties can include liaison with the Exams Team, distribution of materials and escorting students around the building.

Senior Invigilators
Senior Invigilators co-ordinate the exam rooms and the team of Assistant Invigilators assigned to that room. They are responsible for the smooth operation of the exam, and in particular liaison with the Exams Team. Senior Invigilators ensure that candidates are given the correct materials and that an accurate register is taken. Senior Invigilators are also responsible for logging all activity within the exam room and, if needed, completing Alleged Academic Misconduct Report Forms.
In order to be considered for a Senior Invigilator role for Summer 2018 exams you must have worked with us for at least one exam period since Summer 2016.  

Individual Exam Adjustment Invigilators
Individual Exam Adjustment (IEA) Invigilators work in rooms for students who have been granted IEAs. IEAs may include the use of a computer, rest-breaks, extra time, special furniture, a scribe and/or a reader. IEA invigilators are responsible for administering these adjustments alongside remaining alert to candidates' needs and possible instances of academic misconduct. In order to be suitable for the role of IEA Invigilator you will need a clear understanding, knowledge, and experience of students requiring additional arrangements. We would prefer IEA Invigilators to have experience of invigilating IEA exams either at LSE or elsewhere. However, experience in related fields plus the LSE training you will receive may make you a suitable candidate.Natural Dr Leader Scholl's Raffia Print 5wwvPEqHUB

Availability and shift allocation

Whilst we will consider all applications, our preference is for candidates who are reliably available throughout the whole exam period. We do understand though that people may have other commitments and we will always do our best to work round these. 

We aim to allocate shifts as far in advance as possible and will always try our best to give you the pattern and quantity that you have requested. In particular, we will try our best to allocate full days of work (rather than half-days) when this has been requested. 

Please do bear in mind however that our preference has to be the quality of the experience for students at all times.
