Test Day Staff Recruitment

The Macquarie University IELTS Test Centre is one of the largest in Australia. According to our needs, we recruit and train casual staff as Invigilators to carry out the test delivery, which takes place on Saturdays only, on up to 24 dates per year, typically twice per month. All staff are bound by strict codes of practice and confidentiality clauses.

The Test Centre conducts recruitment and training once per year, but applicants should be aware that there is high demand for these casual positions.

Applications are now closed for all positions.

Applicants must be eligible to work in Australia, should live reasonably close to one or more of our venues, must be active and reliable, and able to work 5-hour shifts regularly, starting early on Saturday mornings.

The Test Centre has three venues: Macquarie University North Ryde, Sydney University Darlington, and Sydney University Lidcombe. Staff must expect to be asked occasionally to work at any of these venues, although they would usually work at one or two only, depending on their proximity to the venues.
