About the role
We are seeking a committed, hard-working and dynamic individual to work as part of the Learning and Development Team. We are mainly working from home right now and are able to offer flexible working arrangements to suit your circumstances on an ongoing basis, as well as safe office accommodation if needed.
You will be managing, motivating and developing a small team of administrators and supporting the wider team to ensure the smooth delivery of our training programmes that are offered to council services and partner organisations across the city.
As part of the team you will have a key role in providing excellent customer service working with a variety of customers and training providers within the Council and across the city. We will provide full training, so more important than experience is a willingness to learn, a good eye for detail, good IT skills, a positive attitude and a desire to provide an excellent service. You will be working with others as part of a team and liaising directly with our customers and partners so excellent communication skills are important.
If you feel you have the skills and attributes we are looking for then we want to hear from you.
As part of the application process we require you to answer some additional questions to support your application called 'Branching Questions'. These questions form part of the application process which you will find when you apply. Please read the document below 'Maximise your chance'.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the contracted hours for the position are below 37 hrs per week or term-time only.
Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) Points-based Immigration System.
From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as, LGB, male or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.
As part of Brighton & Hove City Council's ongoing commitment to redeployment, please note that this vacancy may be withdrawn at any stage of the recruitment process, without prior notice if a suitable redeployee (internal employee at risk of redundancy) is identified.
