Learning and Development Manager - South Humberside

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 South Humberside

A postal county that was established in 1974, and then abolished in 1996, South Humberside was located in northern England. It became two unitary authorities: North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.

Some of the towns that were once part of South Humberside included Brigg, Cleethorpes, Grimsby and Scunthorpe. While the county may be gone in name, these locations are still excellent places for those seeking Learning and Development Manager roles.

Fishing and shipping have long been important parts of the region's economy. During the 19th century, Grimsby's port imported a variety of products including iron, wheat, hemp, flax and timber.

When the railway arrived here in the late 1840s, it provided a direct link from South Humberside to London, making it easy to get fresh fish and other produce to the capital quickly.

Currently, the Port of Grimsby is the UK's largest in terms of tonnage - its success is due to a combination of factors, including its deep-water location, ease of access to the rest of the country and a relatively equal distance (about 200 miles) from London, Edinburgh and Rotterdam.

Food processing is the region's major industry today, while renewable energy, chemicals and tech are also important.

Just some of the companies that can be found in the region include Centrica, Siemens, Young's Seafood, Findus, Tata Steel, Corus and Ericsson.
