  • Work closely with functional teams (including training delivery, quality, content, program teams, etc) to provide expert L&D subject matter expertise on all aspects of the L&D Operating Model: from learning needs analysis and design through to deployment and evaluation of learning
  • Apply strong project, change and communications management discipline to advise regional teams on feasibility of delivering their requirements; align on timeframes for execution; manage risks and timelines; and develop high-impact, tailored learning solutions.
