IELTS Examiner Recruitment
UPDATED March 2013
The Macquarie University IELTS Test Centre will be running its next two-day IELTS Speaking Examiner training course in October 2013 (exact dates TBA). Course hours are 9 am to 5:30 pm both days, as the course is quite intensive. Applications will be invited for Examiner training, from suitably qualified and experienced applicants. MU IELTS Test Centre delivers tests in two locations, MU North Ryde Campus (main site) and Sydney University Darlington Campus (secondary site). To be eligible for training, you will need to commit to examining exclusively at one or both of these sites for at least two years after Certification. Tests are conducted on Saturdays roughly every two weeks. Therefore you should live within easy travelling distance of either site.
The deadline for submission of applications will be announced in July or August 2013. Please note that rather than sending in your application by post, complete applications and all supporting documents (resumes, testimonials/statements of service, AND all qualification certificates/transcripts) must be scanned to .PDF in one document, which is to be emailed to us for consideration. Please do not send multiple separate documents and jpegs. If you are selected for interview, all originals will be sighted at the interview stage, along with 100 points of ID for the mandatory NSW Police Working with Children Check.
You are also required to download from this page, and send by email, to your chosen professional referees, the two IELTS Confidential Reference Requests (see below). They should complete, sign, scan and email to us by at least two weeks before the course date. References must come from the referees' email addresses rather than your own.
