The details

What is the role?

Best-in-class learning and development is crucial to enabling our people to continue to solve the most challenging problems and have a massive impact.

We are looking for a Learning and Development Specialist to lead the redesign of our current learning programmes against the framework and design, deliver and curate new interventions that positively impact performance in the relevant areas of Newton You.

Working alongside the Talent Team, this role will help ensure everyone in the business gets the learning they need, when they need it.

You’ll be supported with a significant amount of personal development, a robust development plan, regular performance and development discussions, and your own development manager whose aim is to help you fulfil your career ambitions and expand your horizons.
