Job description

Victim Support is looking for a Learning and Development Project Manager for a fixed term of six months. The post holder will work 22.5 hours a week and their main area of focus will be management and leadership learning.

Victim Support (VS) is an independent charity for people affected by crime in England and Wales. We work towards a world where people affected by crime or traumatic events get the support they need and respect they deserve.

The successful candidate will be joining our Learning and Development Team on a fixed term basis (6 months) and will be responsible for project managing and supporting the creation of VS's Management and Leadership learning framework. The post holder will be working closely with the Head of Learning and Development, Senor Operational Managers and the existing Learning and Development Advisors to identify leadership and management learning needs and address this through utilising existing resources and creating new learning interventions. This post is a project management role, with a large proportion of time spent on developing learning interventions in a variety of formats including workshops, online learning and on the job activities.

You will need to be a creative learning and development professional, who is able to manage their time well and deliver results under pressure. Learning what we do and how we do it quickly will be essential, and relating this to what our managers and leaders need to know and do is the key aspect of this role.

Having knowledge and experience of creating leadership and management learning is essential for this post holder. You will be working on creating a framework from scratch, which will be an exciting project for the right candidate.

This is a home based role, that will include travel across the national organisation and the post holder must be able to work well independently and with the existing Learning and Development Team.

You will be IT proficient (word, Outlook, Powerpoint), and have some experience of developing e-learning packages either as a developer or as a project manager.

Victim Support offers competitive rewards and benefits including pension and life assurance, 25 days annual leave (pro-rata), voluntary benefits such as season ticket loans and the opportunity to play a key role in a national charity providing world-class services to victims and witnesses and being a vital force for change.
