Describe your typical working day?
Within the HRD team every day is different, which is part of the reason why I enjoy the role so much! On a training delivery day, the day typically begins with a check on the room and equipment to ensure everything is ready to go. Once happy, I will grab the essential cup of tea before welcoming attendees into the session and getting started.
As well as delivering bespoke training for our business units, I am involved with delivering Induction and training for our in-house programs, which are tailored for Line Managers, Supervisors, Project Managers and Project Co-ordinators. Many of our training sessions run to lunch or shortly afterwards so when I return to my desk in the afternoon, the first port of call is to check in on e-mails and sign off on any training records in our Learning Management System. Often there may be meetings set up whether it’s our own team meetings to plan upcoming training or meetings with the business to discuss development needs and priorities.
Non-training days will involve the development of training materials, organizing external training providers or the creation of interactive e-learning materials.
