Temporary exam marker, Nottingham

Exam Marker (Former Employee) Nottingham, England (UK)

ProsPays better than other temp roles in Nottingham. Well-organised. Large number of markers so quite sociable during breaks. Free hot drinks provided from a machine.

ConsNo longer guarantee of contract length - if the team marks faster than predicted, everyone loses days' work at the end. Can be quite boring to sit silently for long hours while marking. Some markers don't seem as skilled, or to be taking it seriously, which raises questions about how accurately students' papers are graded (not all are now double-marked).

Advice to Senior ManagementCommit to contract lengths predicted. Reinstate double marking for all papers.
