Productive & Utililized

We normally enter at the very dawn of the day in our allocated institutes. The day typically is tough but extremely utilized and productive at full length till the eleventh hour. I have learnt the systematic and organized discipline there. Management was in touch with the invigilators and in turn we look after the candidates for any solution they need from us during the exam hours. The workplace culture was smooth and friendly but very firm. The hardest part of the job was the detection of the examinee for any fraudulent activities at the time of entrance or during the exam hours. The most enjoyable part is calling all the waiting candidates towards the hall by their reporting time when half of them don;t listen the floaters.


Short timings


No lunch

Bristish the best thing ever happened

I always have great vibes for my every other of work, I do not like to stay boring at my workplace so, I always stay positive. staying bored at work always decreases the productivity and loss to efficiency as well which is need of the hour. I always manage things ahead rather they are crucial to be handled. Meeting new people is the best and flawed management always cost you good employees.

Working with British Council in Pakistan was a great Experience in my life

British Council Pakistan , I worked for them as a temporary Invigilator in CIE 2015 and CIE 2016 Exams in Pakistan. Guidance for students and supervising the staff was my job but it was temporary like being for a month or two.


we were offered free high tea and luxurious lunch daily on job hours


most probably the working hours were short like about 5 hours to 8 hours.
