Thank you for your interest in the role of Library Manager at The Milton Keynes Academy.

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and organised individual to join us.

At MKA, we have a modern, open-plan Library which is utilised by staff and students for independent work and reading for pleasure. It is well resourced with a wide range of materials to meet the curriculum needs and leisure interests of the whole school community (including a collection of staff CPD resources). We welcome readers beginning English, through to those aspiring to University or going into employment.

The Library is open throughout the school day. A Study Club runs after school for learners to obtain support with their work.

MKA is based in central Milton Keynes, an area that continues to grow and thrive at a rapid rate. The Milton Keynes Academy joined Creative Education Trust in September 2018. This has enabled the school to continue its rigorous pursuit of rapid improvement for the children it teaches.

As Library Manager, the post holder will be responsible for the leadership and management of the Library provision, working with curriculum areas to develop and promote the role of the Library and support our aim to engender a passion for wider reading and enquiry, which in turn will broaden our young people’s knowledge and develop a love of reading.

In return we offer an excellent programme of CPD that will support and develop your career during your time with us, Local Government Pension Scheme and access to an onsite Gym and Perkbox.

Our staff are inspirational and caring. The students are at the heart of everything we do and if you share our vision of Opportunities for Everyone and are suitably qualified for the role, then we would love to hear from you!

We are an equal opportunities employer. MKA is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, we expect all staff to share this commitment. References from previous employers will be requested for short-listed applicants prior to interview.
