The opportunity

  • Working with the relevant teams to create various media (online, digital and face-to-face) to support the learning objectives.
  • Managing train-the-trainer programs to deliver the end result, including leader-led, blended learning solutions, course materials and programs.

  • Experience in a similar role as a Learning Designer, preferably in a professional services organisation.
  • A solid understanding of various software and systems, including: authoring tools, LMS Systems, VILT.
  • Ability to navigate a complex stakeholder environment and build relationships.
  • Highly consultative approach with exceptional stakeholder engagement, with an ability to coach and influence senior leaders.

What we'll offer

You'll be given ongoing opportunities to get involved and to take your career all the way. It's up to you to make the most of them.
