We are extremely happy to be again working with this well-known organisation that places pride on its contribution to communities globally whilst having a dedicated and very strong history in terms of developing its people. With a diverse portfolio in distribution and logistics and a recent re-organization to focus even more on developing expertise and reputation the business is looking for a functional learning expert that can help drive further enable business success through it’s people. The organisation is very well established, with an open and direct culture that has been key to its success so far whilst having a unique blend of commitment and sustainability lifestyle for it’s employees.

The Role

The position reports to the CLO and is responsible for the functional Learning and Development in the business as part of the Learning and Organisational Development team. This role has the fantastic challenge of bringing all of those people together to support a common purpose as well as develop shared standards of excellence. There will be a direct team of around three people with a large number of stakeholders whereby extensive influencing and indirect leadership will be critical. The role will require excellent facilitation and people skills and the ability to work within a multicultural and rapidly changing environment where building a further aligned community of learning professionals amongst the various businesses globally will be key.

The individual we are seeking will have a strong track-record of success in functional Learning on an international basis preferably having lived and worked across more than one country but certainly having held multi country remits. Strong change or transformation acumen will be important. We are looking for a bright but pragmatic and practical individual who can apply ‘commonsense’ as opposed to heavy theory, strong international experience in a mature matrix growth environment would be desirable. Most importantly is someone that is able to foster collaboration and build synergies.
