This is a part-time (0.5 FTE) post, available immediately on a permanent basis. This role offers the opportunity for hybrid working – some time on campus and some from home.
The University is seeking an enthusiastic candidate to work alongside a team of learning and development professionals to support a range of strategic initiatives leading to the development of university staff. This includes the University’s Researcher Concordat and HR Excellence in Research Action Plans as well as the exciting developments emerging from our Exeter Professional initiative.
We are looking for a self-motivated, organised, collaborative individual with great communication skills to join the People Development Team at the University. The role works with both the Heads of People Development and Researcher Development and Research Culture to help plan, deliver, monitor and evaluate actions in the University’s Researcher Concordat Action Plan. This will include networking to ensure the ‘Early Career Researchers voice’ is heard, gathering, analysing and reporting information and managing steering groups and associated processes. The role also includes involvement in other projects and initiatives such as Exeter Professional, Apprenticeships and wider design and delivery of staff training working collaboratively with teams across the University.
You will have a sound understanding of learning development principles and delivery. The ideal candidate will be confident to communicate via different mediums at all levels and must have a desire to help all colleagues, both Academic and Professional Services, in their career journeys at the University. Comfortable working in a matrix environment where work is allocated and prioritised across different services, you will have excellent interpersonal skills and be flexible in your approach to work. Applicants will also be self-motivated, reliable, have a creative approach to problem solving and work effectively in a team. You will have achieved CIPD accreditation or have demonstrable, equivalent experience.
Please ensure you read the Job Description and Person Specification (available on the university's website, accessed by the apply button) for full details of this role including the essential and desirable criteria.
