IMAGINE walking into school and seeing a dinosaur - or a plane - or a badger. The Langley Academy is not just another school; it is a new way of learning. As the UK’s first museum school, The Langley Academy has a museum within the building. Here you are encouraged to use your imagination to create new ways to ignite students’ desire to learn. 

We are ideally situated, only minutes from the M4 at Junction 5 and the M25, and with excellent rail links to Central London. If you chose to live here, renting is cheaper than in Central London, yet you are in town quickly. Windsor, Marlow or Henley are close and if you enjoy weekend travelling it takes about 15 minutes to Heathrow. We border Buckinghamshire, with no less than 100,000 acres which are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - including a substantial part of the magnificently wooded Chiltern Hills. Whether you are into the outdoors or want to be close to London, working here is ideal. 

Our Science Department is looking to recruit a Senior Science Technician. The successful candidate will be an individual who has experience in coordinating the use and maintenance of practical science resources and facilities as well as leading and advising in meeting the practical needs of the science curriculum. 

You will be responsible for preparing resources, chemicals and other materials for class practicals, carrying out maintenance checks, arranging for repairs as necessary, coordinating and organising the inventory of equipment and stock control and undertaking stock checks. 

Previous experience in a Senior Science Technician role in a school environment is desirable but not essential. A positive attitude and calm manner with the ability to organise, prioritise and deal with a demanding workload is vital. You will be an excellent communicator and have a professional approach.

Closing date: 10am, 19 September 2018 • Interview date: w/c 24 September 2018
