Learning & Development Lead

About the Role

If you want to put your expertise in making a difference to how people learn, grow and develop while meeting service, organisational and regulatory needs to good use, and having the opportunity to learn and develop – then this is the role for you.

Working in the social care sector is demanding and requires thinking outside of the box and finding creative solutions. This makes it challenging but a great learning environment to hone your knowledge and skills.

This is a new role for the Trust within the HR & OD service working closely with HR colleagues, the Quality Team and our general and registered managers. The role will contribute to the delivery of an effective and respected HR and L&D Service that enables achievement of the Trust’s strategic objectives and annual business plan, and growth agenda, by:

  • Leading on the identifying of L&D needs and developing the Trust’s blended learning offering to produce the annual delivery plan, evaluation framework and budget
  • Providing advice and support to managers on L&D interventions to improve services and develop people’s ability to apply their learning into practice
  • Leading on and contributing to projects that underpin the required ‘ways of working’ and promote innovation in service delivery

You will need all your experience, ambition, energy and sense of fun to make this role work, alongside a desire to improve the life of opportunity for people with learning disabilities. In return we will provide great support, committed and knowledgeable colleagues and the opportunity to shape and lead our blended learning offering and its impact on people and services.

This is a home-based role with travel to our communities – North Yorkshire/Middlesbrough; Hertfordshire; Gloucestershire; West Midlands.

If this sounds exciting to you and you have the skills, experience and enthusiasm to help us achieve our vision then we look forward to hearing from you.
