Are you an enthusiastic L&D professional who thrives on developing people?

An excellent opportunity has arisen for an experienced and passionate Learning and Development Manager to join our friendly HR team and focus on improving organisational performance and impact by developing the skills and talent of our managers, staff and volunteers through effective L&D initiatives.

Friends of the Earth’s vision is a healthy environment that provides a decent life for all generations to come. This is an exciting time to join us, following last years’ launch of an ambitious 5-year strategy and the set-up of a new Senior Leadership team. Investment in the learning, performance, diversity and impact of our people is a top organisational priority.

In this role, you will work collaboratively across the organisation to prepare an L&D strategy and annual learning programme and focus on developing and delivering innovative learning solutions across a range of areas including management and leadership, soft skills, campaigning, organising and digital. We’ll expect you to drive forward a culture of learning and challenge the status quo by implementing new influential initiatives.

As an experienced learning and development professional, you will have a thorough understanding of learning and be skilled in the application of a broad range of training and facilitation methods. What makes you perfect for this role is your ability to business partner across the organisation synthesise and design a coherent and clear learning vision, strategy and programme. Excellent communication, influencing and facilitation skills are essential.

We offer a competitive range of benefits, a good work/life balance, excellent learning and development opportunities and a vibrant and friendly organisational culture.
