Key Responsibilities:

The Compliance and Technical Learning Lead will challenge the status quo and champion a culture shift across Careys, driving a more commercially viable training model focussed on bulk-training, in-house delivery and proactive and organised (as opposed to ad-hoc) scheduling. You will be a change agent who can see and re-enforce the bigger picture - partnering and influencing operational and functional leaders and project teams to embrace and embed the change and achieve the goal of ‘right person, right training, right time and right cost.’

  • Ensure all compliance (construction and safety critical certifications), business governance (e.g. competition law, bribery and corruption, GDPR) and core-function technical learning needs (operations, engineering and commercial) are strategically delivered across the Group (Careys and BDL) via a first-class quality and commercially viable model.
  • Introduce and drive a revised scheduling and delivery framework for mandatory compliance training (SHED 2.5, Manual Handling, Face Fit, Small Tools & Abrasive Wheels, First Aid at Work, Mental Health First Aid, Fire Marshall and PAT Testing).
  • Further embed our self-delivery model, moving away from supplier-led training. Maintain in-house SSP accreditation and target further commercially viable accreditations to deliver the highest volume/core courses in-house.
  • Identify and upskill a pool of in-house regional trainers/facilitators to deliver programme
  • Partner with operations, commercial and engineering disciplines to embed clear learning pathways that are aligned with recognised chartership bodies (RICS, CIOB and ICE).
  • Use reports and data to collate and analyse training needs.

About You:
