Your willingness to travel and flexibility are all essential for this role.

You will manage teams remotely within the L&D function, leading in delivery and co-ordination of innovative and flexible learning and development solutions for health and social care professionals.

You will have experience using a Learning Management System, conducting training needs analysis, and have a high level of digital proficiency and technical ability. Your approach will be evidence-based, and you’ll be comfortable using reports and working with data and information to manage training certifications.

Strong communication and organisational skills are essential to managing busy regional teams. You’ll have a service orientated approach, thrive working with a dynamic workload, rise to a challenge and enjoy using your creative and innovative ideas to problem solve on a daily basis. You’ll be an experienced leader, with strong project management, interpersonal and influencing skills.

Having a relevant professional qualification and/or experience, the ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate their specialist knowledge and skills in the development and delivery of training in the classroom, virtually and through other digital platforms.

But above all, you must be passionate about the services we provide to the people we support, and excited to play your part in achieving our mission and living our values through the work you do.
