Our client is a top 100 UK law firm. They have recently embarked on a new strategy which will see it grow its workforce, client base and revenue in Wales and elsewhere in the UK.

The team provides internal training for all of the Firm's staff including IT training. Reporting to the Head of HR the successful candidate will be tasked with the design, delivery and evaluation of the majority of internal training courses and will also be responsible for liaising with internal and external specialist providers to facilitate ad hoc training requests.

The role will involve management of the L&D team, internal training budget, conducting regular firm-wide training needs analysis and liaising with key stakeholders within the firm, creating a range of training courses using blended learning styles to meet the identified needs and managing firm-wide CPD requirements.

Currently the courses provided by our client cover a range of soft skills and management training and it is anticipated that the successful candidate will grow and develop this further. Training would be provided to all employees within the firm including senior managers and directors. The successful candidate should be confident to liaise with, and deliver training and learning interventions, at this level.

Applications are welcomed from those with a training background who have the ability to understand the needs of the firm and translate those needs into an effective learning and development programme, encompassing all stages of the training cycle.

A proactive enthusiastic approach is required as is the ability to quickly build working relationships with employees, senior management, specialist trainers and support teams.

A training qualification and experience of operating a learning management system are desirable. However, the successful candidate will understand the key concepts of effective learning and development within a law firm and be keen to undertake continuous professional development to maintain this knowledge.
