King’s College is a forward looking international school which follows the British curriculum
with 1500 students aged between 3 and 18 years. The buildings and grounds are extensive
with substantial investment giving purpose-built facilities, underpinned by a dedication to high
quality teaching and learning. The Examinations Officer will work alongside other
administrative staff as part of an efficient, supportive and collaborative team.

We seek to appoint an experienced Examinations Officer who is able to work autonomously
and undertake a wide range of duties. This is an interesting and varied role which has arisen
following the retirement of a long-serving member of staff.

Potentially, this may be a stand-alone post or candidates may also wish to be considered for a
part-time teaching role and should therefore mention their experience and preferences within
their applications. All subjects will be considered.

Responsibilities will include:

       The management of all examinations, including GCE, (I)GCSE, internal exams, CEM
        Centre Tests, oral examinations etc
       Submission of scripts and coursework to examination boards
       Support with the administration of processes to manage assessments, reports and
        monitoring
       Organization of exam timetables, invigilation and supervision
       Advising the College’s Academic Leadership Group on all matters relating to exams
       Liaising directly with Exam Boards
       Issuing exam timetables and the organization of exam venues
       Entering students for public exams
       Administering student coursework and controlled assessments
       Downloading exam results on the days they become available
       Liaising with Head of Secondary, Director of Studies and Heads of Department to plan
        and prepare for internal exams
       Give information to students and staff relating to all exam entries and deadlines
       Liaise and communicate directly with any external candidates
       Recruitment, management and training of Exam invigilators
       To analyse exam results as required by the ALG
       To keep all staff informed of examination arrangements and any procedure or protocol
        changes that occur
       To officiate at the start and end of examinations
       To offer support with the administration of processes to manage assessments, reports
        and monitoring
       The creation of a new College Public Exams Policy and Handbook
       To assist the Director of Studies and Academic Manager when necessary
The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate:

       The ability to work under pressure
       Meticulous attention to detail
       Highly competent ICT skills
       A professional manner with children, young people, colleagues and parents
       The motivation and the ability to work both as a part of a team and independently
       A proactive approach to problem-solving
       The ability to use a wide range of computer software (preferably including SIMS)
       Excellent numeracy, literacy, organization and communication skills
       Experience of school examination systems
       Experience of working under pressure and meeting deadlines
       Experience of working flexibly in response to changing situations
       A willingness to undergo regular training and professional development
       An understanding of, and preferably experience in, an educational environment

A proven track-record is essential in this role and the successful applicant will have recent
experience of managing all aspects of the administration and management of school
examinations.

The post will require a degree of flexible working to take account of the cyclical nature of
school examinations. The post-holder, if not included within the teaching body, will be
expected to work a minimum of 20 hours per week in both the Christmas and Easter terms,
and 36 hours in the Summer term. The Exams Officer must also be within school throughout
the public examinations’ release dates in August.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young
people and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be
required to undertake an enhanced CRB disclosure

Applications should be made via the electronic Application Form and should be returned,
via email, to the Head’s P.A. noelia.tolosa@kingsgroup.org no later than the closing date of
Wednesday 13 June.
