Exam invigilator salary breakdown

As an exam invigilator you’re not going to be working year-round since invigilation is mostly only required in the school exam period through May and June. You likely won’t be working any set hours but you could earn around £9.60 an hour in this seasonal job but this isn’t a hard limit, your hourly wage could be more. 

Your income as an exam invigilator is going to depend on a few things. Firstly, think about where you’re going to be working. Your location could mean you’re earning more or less than the national average, so it’s good to check out how pay might vary between your local area and others. For example, Londoners can expect to earn on average 25% more than the next closest region because of things like the cost of living. 

How you could earn a higher exam invigilator salary

If you’re looking to earn a higher salary as an exam invigilator then you should look into acquiring additional skills and knowledge that will be useful in the job. Having the right supporting qualifications is going to help you to be considered for better paying positions since these qualifications are valuable in any school setting, even with short term work like invigilation.
