The IELTS examiner package in China is based on a core + top-up model. There are two components to the package: a core number of days work in exchange for a basic salary, and a top up component that allows for flexibility in terms of schedule and the opportunity to increase earnings further.

The top up component is paid on a piece rate basis, allowing examiners to have more control over their time and income. Across the vast majority of months in the year, top up earnings represent the bulk of examiner income.

Core salary is 8,000 RMB for 6 days of examining work per month. These are scheduled in advance and are based on operational requirements. Examiners are then able to make themselves available for top up work on other days during that month.

Examiners can expect to take home an average of 20,000 RMB per month if they avail themselves of all work opportunities. There is seasonal fluctuation, however, and examiners are usually very busy during months where demand is high while having more free time at other times.
