Learning and Development Manager - Solihull

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.

Solihull is a town 6 miles (10 km) south east of Birmingham, but it is within the West Midlands conurbation. Coventry is 10 miles (17 km) to the east. The town retains much of its Victorian architecture due to being left largely untouched during World War II, unlike its two neighbouring cities. While the town has a population of around 100,000, Solihull’s metropolitan borough includes over 200,000 people.

The borough is home to three major sites of national repute. First, there’s Birmingham Airport, which is to the north eat of the town centre. The airport handles flights to much of Europe as well as North America, the Middle East and the Caribbean. Second is the National Exhibition Centre, where conferences, pop concerts and even exhibitions take place. And third is the Land Rover factory, which shares its production of the iconic range of vehicles with Halewood near Liverpool.

With first-rate communications from road (the M42 passes nearby), rail and air, close links to Birmingham city centre and an active population, Solihull is a natural place to look for a Learning and Development Manager job.
