You will ensure that we are delivering contemporary and considered design for our learning solutions. You will ensure that our learning solutions are learner centric and stay true to the learning outcomes we've identified. You will work with our internal customers to take them on the learning design journey and make them feel excited about what we're delivering for them.


You will partner with others in the team to make sure our recommendations on a suitable learning solution meet the need identified and are then developed to the highest of standards. Whether is be from responsive and branching eLearning modules and apps, to workbooks, on the job aids, infographics, webinars, checklists, help sheets, video, motion graphics – the list goes on.
