Learning and Development Manager - Surrey

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 Surrey

Located in the South East of England, Surrey shares borders with Kent, East and West Sussex, Hampshire and Berkshire, as well as Greater London, making it one of the Home Counties.

There are many large towns and villages in Surrey - such as Woking, Guildford, Ewell, Epsom and Redhill - making it a suitable choice for those seeking Learning and Development Manager opportunities. What's more, with much of the county being considered part of the London commuter belt, it's also a good location for those who want to work in the capital but live away from the city.

For much of Surrey's modern history, the region has been known for paper manufacturing and gunpowder. However, these were in steep decline by the early 20th century and new industries took over, such as bicycle and car manufacture.

The McLaren Group, one of the best-known names in automotives, is based here. It has manufacturing and administration facilities in Woking and has also opened a technology centre for research and development.

Some of the region's other top employers include engineering firm WS Atkins, Philips Electronics, Colgate-Palmolive and Ericsson. There's also a large Alexander Dennis factory in the area, which manufactures chassis for buses and fire engines.
