Job Purpose

The primary purpose of the role is to support the day to day learning coordination needs of a business function/function/site. A proportion of this work / activity will be standardised across all roles but there will be a level of variability based on local ways of working and critical activities within the function i.e. this variability could be driven by being in a highly regulated area such as GMS where technical and compliance demands are high versus HR where different logistical practices need to be supported.
These roles will have a critical interface to the global service for training administration and there will therefore be a strong requirement for collaborative working and adherence to global standard operating procedures and request management practices. The other critical interface for this role will be to the ‘local’ business function they are supporting and therefore they will need to engage positively and effectively with these teams also.
