Group Head of People Development (Global)
Love Your Work - Work Your Magic … it’s the defining statement that sums up who our client is and what it’s like to work for them. It’s a rallying cry that guides everything they do, and a powerful invitation to you to join in the fun!
What they do is different to most – their industry, their product, and the experience that they offer their customers. It’s a unique working environment, and far more interesting and exciting than most. The incredible level of variety in their customer proposition and within their operations brings with it continuous new challenges and opportunities. Their colleagues embrace this with a strong team ethos, and most importantly always strive to have fun.
Feeling the combined elation and pain of an organisation moving through their teenage phase, together with the demands of trading as a FTSE 250 business with global operations - this is an environment experiencing significant development and transformational change.
With heaps of exciting opportunities to grow and develop their 9000 employed colleagues and many more seasonal hires, we’re looking for a Learning & Development specialist with a strong passion and desire to build and embed their L&D brand and strategy. Culturally, shifting from classroom based training to utilising new systems, tools and technology to engage and excite their people, encouraging self-development through accessible, modern, cutting edge blended learning solutions.
You’ll have demonstrated your success to date within a multi-site business of similar scale, ideally across an international landscape that may have included Europe, US and/or APAC. The ability to build strong multiple stakeholder relationships across a complex matrix is critical, together with a seasoned capability in influencing this senior cohort to sponsor and drive organisational development and effectiveness. This will certainly be a role for you to showcase your talents and contribution but it won’t be without it’s challenges – your tenacity and resilience will be needed to land this scalable change. However, give your best and most authentic self, make magic your way, and we guarantee it will be a role that continues to surprise and delight you – you’ll certainly be having fun along the way!
The practical stuff – relocation is available for those who fancy a move to the South Coast, or you can work remotely and spend time at their lovely HQ pad with the team a couple of times a week. It’s not about presenteeism here – you’ll be measured on your valued contribution and results.
If this sounds of interest in the first instance please forward your CV to us, and we’ll be in touch shortly.
