Learning and Development Manager - Cleveland

Learning and Development Manager Jobs

All good companies base their HR strategy around retaining and attracting the best talent, and a big part of this goal is their commitment to learning and development throughout the business. The best employees demand it, but there are sound business reasons for keeping L&D up to date. To prevent grand L&D strategies from fizzling out once they leave the board room, however, it’s essential that learning and development managers are appointed to ensure the strategies are put into action, hence the need for good learning and development managers.

Depending on the size of the company, the learning and development manager either reports to a director of L&D or the board in general and may have a degree of autonomy when it comes to designing and implementing strategies. The L&D manager is judged on how well she or he delivers the KPIs laid down by the organization, which usually revolve around talent retention and performance of the department they oversee. Learning and development management is a great step in the ladder towards directorship, as it can shine a light on the manager’s ability to interpret strategies and put them into action.

The skills required

While previous experience of learning and development management is often preferred, many companies consider experienced HR professionals who have dealt with all aspects of L&D, such as appraisals, examinations, assessments and personal development programmes and have put these into action for a busy company.

You should have a rounded set of skills on the current best practice in the field of learning and development gained through continuous learning on the back of some appropriate qualifications. An ability to demonstrate that you can manage people in a methodical and consistent manner is also required – for example you need to keep on top of qualifications that may expire and ensure they are re-sat and renewed as appropriate. Experience of working in the same field is also advantageous.

Learning and Development Manager Jobs in Cleveland

Situated in the north-east of England, Cleveland is a region that has been long known for its industrial and manufacturing capabilities, and it offers a range of opportunities for those seeking Learning and Development Manager positions.

During the 18th century, ironwork was a major part of the local economy and the ironstone used for blast furnaces on the River Tees was procured from the Cleveland Hills.

These days, Cleveland is not an officially recognised region. In the mid-1990s, the county was broken up into four unitary authorities: Hartlepool, Stockton-on-Tees, Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland.

However, many people from the region still identify themselves as being from Cleveland and bodies like the Cleveland Police and Cleveland Fire Brigade carry the name today.

Much of the area is undergoing significant regeneration, and these days, the economy is mainly based in retail, technology and the service sector.

However, a few big-names in heavy industry still call the region home. For example, there's the Cleveland Bridge and Engineering Company, Teeside Steelworks and Dorman Long, which provided the steel for the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Tyne Bridge and the Auckland Harbour Bridge.

What's more, Teesport is the country's third largest port and handles around 56 million tonnes of cargo every year, with facilities including container quays and RORO ramps.
