Ever dreamt of Invigilating?

Don't mess with the Invigilator... It'd be a kinda cool job title to have on the aul CV wouldn't it? No? Just me? Again?

The Frames will be an Irish band then...?

Could you come and invigilate my house from two seven year-old boys. I can't offer this: 'you will receive in-kind benefits in the form of access to our multi media and music rooms or vouchers for our cafe' but I've got a record-player and a kitchen.

I'm speechless.

If there's records for that player and food in that kitchen I'm there.
swiss - any time... just let me know what you're looking for.
why are you speechless TFE? - any long word ending in ation makes me think of that song. "Sometimes I need a sanitation" "Sometimes I need exasperation" etc etc - they missed a trick there - could have had another 20 verses at least!

I agree it would look cool on the aul C.V. Something I consigned to the bin many years ago. Count me out, but best of luck!

I've been an invigilator. Moonlighted as one, really. It's ok, not great. But it does make you feel pretty powerful.

Tks for that swiss, I love getting google to translate, you end up with such interesting phrases, and it works so well on pages like that.
Tks Dave, don't think I'll get to apply either, my cv's well filled with random junk at this stage too!
Jessica that's cool, must've been hard to return back to being a normal person again.
