The Role

In the past year we have experienced some extremely exciting business growth, with a significant increase in our internal headcount, as well as an 87% uplift in our yearly turnover. Last year we had 17 internal promotions and Oscar's most recent promotion is that of our Training Manager who was recently promoted to Operations Director. Due to this promotion, we are now looking to bring in an experienced Learning & Development / Training Manager within our most important business function to join our US operations.

The position will involve a lot of autonomy and you will need to have experience interacting at all business levels, ideally across global offices, from entry level recruiters to experienced managers.

We have tremendous success when it comes to hiring entry level recruiters, with the average time for their first promotion being just 4 months. These metrics will be important to you as you will look to work collaboratively with your stakeholders to create the most effective framework, with the goal in mind to increase training conversions and overall success rates.

You will seek feedback through in-depth training analysis to understand the impact of training initiatives on performance, one-to-one coaching and group sessions ensuring the quality is kept high across the business.
