Our L&D team is at the start of a fantastic journey, together we are energised to support the Society in creating an empowering learning organisation. If you like variety, are curious and flexible, then we’ve got loads to keep you interested! Our team and these roles require flexibility across a multiple of areas, offering opportunities to support different communities within the society. At times you might need to use your consulting and influencing skills in the creation of innovative learning solutions to enable the business to change and grow or you might be enabling the induction and development of our front-line colleagues and leaders across our Retail Branch Network, our multi-site Contact Centres and other high volume areas, so that we can continue to deliver Legendary Service to our Members.
