Your role in our journey
We are seeking to recruit a suitably qualified and experienced professional to work within the Organisation and Workforce Development Service. This post will assist the Learning and Development Co-ordinator to work with internal Council customers, including council officers and Councillors as well as external organisations to design, develop and deliver high quality training programmes which will cover a wide range of topics. Duties include delivery of training courses, briefing sessions, presentations, events and e-learning. You’ll proactively liaise, negotiate and collaborate with internal and external customers to the Council, providing professional advice and building productive working relationships with our customer base. Crucially, you will use feedback and data to evaluate learning and development activities, identifying improvements and ensuring value for money.
What you’ll need
To join us, you’ll need a Level 4 Diploma in an area relevant to the role and a Level 3 qualification in training, teaching or learning and development. You will bring to the role experience in the development, design, delivery and evaluation of training. With highly developed communication skills, you will have experience of providing individuals with professional advice and guidance and delivering formal presentations to a wide range of audiences, including internal and external customers.
We want to make our current training offer more engaging and innovative using the latest technologies, with this post being integral to that change. We are looking for someone with a creative mind, who is up for the challenge and willing to develop their skills and knowledge whilst helping others to do the same.
A lot to look forward to
Our award-winning council is on an exciting journey of change. It’s all about putting local people at the heart of everything, listening to and doing the best for our communities. We’re now more innovative, more efficient and provide better value for money. Here at Barnsley, we live and work by four important values: honesty, teamwork, excellent service, and taking pride in what we do.
As part of our team, you can be sure we’ll do all we can to support you in being truly excellent and enable you to achieve your potential. We’ve created a development process that lets you grow in the way that suits you - whether that’s training to be a leader, or learning flexibly online. That’s one of the reasons why we are so proud to have achieved IiP Gold, and why you’ll find your career here inspiring and rewarding.
