Learning and Development Manager - Wigtownshire

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 Wigtownshire

Right at the south-western corner of Scotland, where it reaches out into the Irish Sea at the Rhins of Galloway, is the historic county of Wigtownshire. Although it is now part of the larger Dumfries and Galloway county, it retains its personality as a region of fishing and ferries to Ireland and the Scottish islands. As the crow flies, its south-eastern tip is only 21 miles (36 km) from Northern Ireland. Wigtownshire borders Ayrshire to the north and Kirkcudbrightshire to the east.

Any logistics or supply chain jobs such as Learning and Development Manager positions in the area will usually be connected to farming or the ferries, although the sparse population will limit such openings. The largest town in Wigtownshire is not Wigtown itself (whose population is less than a thousand) but Stranraer, at the southern end of Loch Ryan, with its 10,000 inhabitants. This probably represents the best opportunity for such work in Wigtownshire.
