Learning & Development Co-Ordinator

Full Time

Up to £25,000 depending on experience + excellent benefits

Looking after the development of our Managers and their teams is just as high a priority to us as the progress of our Young People. By ensuring high levels of skills in our people, we can ensure performance of our Schools, Homes and Support functions is of the highest standards.

As L&D Co-ordinator, you will be based at our beautiful office in Lupton, just outside Kirkby Lonsdale. You will have key responsibility for administrating the delivery and recording of the outstanding training we offer throughout the Group.

Your role

This is a busy and varied role that will see you provide a range of support services for a whole cohort of senior leaders in Schools, Homes and Head Office. Being at the centre of delivery, you’ll provide them with the detail they need to ensure that training is delivered effectively to everyone. This means creating calendars of training, booking staff on courses and managing and liaising with external providers. You’ll be responsible for maximising course attendance, managing delegate lists, preparing training packs, keeping records and updating all the information surrounding our comprehensive training delivery.

Your profile

This role requires an individual who has great attention to detail and provides excellent customer service. Previous Learning & Development experience is not essential. You’ll be friendly and personable and have experience of a busy office environment, managing time and data with ease and having a highly accurate and considered approach to your work. You’ll be at the centre of training delivery, always remaining focused as you problem-solve and work to strict deadlines. It’s a real team effort and if you want to work in an environment that is all about people, you’ll love it here.
