Our client is an instantly recognisable, household name retailer offering quality goods at everyday low prices. One of the largest, most successful and fastest growing organisations in its sector, the company’s owners believe that its values and ways of doing things underpin its commercial success.

The business has grown organically to just over 380 stores and employs approximately 21,000 people.  With a strong Board and a clear customer proposition in place, the business is performing well.  The outlook for the future is positive and the environment confident and assured.

Reporting to the HR & Talent Director and supported by a team, your brief will be to take full responsibility for all strategic and operational aspects of Learning and Talent Development.  You will develop plans that underpin one of many change programmes taking place to make sure the business is ready with fully trained colleagues.  You will also oversee, manage and mitigate risk, develop state of the art resourcing strategies and capability, and play a huge role in evolving the company’s revitalised IT infrastructure.

You must be an accomplished L&D leader with a clear knowledge of culture change, risk, attraction, resourcing, talent management, development and retention, and broader project management skills.

Ideally you will be working in a similar role with a leading retailer or multi-site leisure operator.

The opportunities for career progression are outstanding.
