Simpsons Malt Limited is a highly successful, well invested family business that both works within agriculture as a grain merchant, but also has manufacturing operations in the Borders and Norfolk to supply speciality malt to customers in brewing and distilling. Our customer base stretches around the world with export a rising feature and ranges from the craft micro brewer through to blue chip multi national distillers. Our manufacturing sites see the move towards excellence and the use of "lean" tools you would expect. Location on this advert is set at our Norfolk site, but we are also open to applicants who wish to base themselves at our Head Office in the Borders, or work from home with significant travel-the right person is more key than location. This role will lead on the delivery of training across the whole organisation. Initially it will focus on establishing a framework to identify the skills needed by occupation, establish viable delivery approaches and identifying appropriate delivery partners. A secondary focus will be the development of staff to include the introduction and of a process to identify potential internal successors for key job holders and putting in place development programs for those staff to make successful succession likely. Also important will be work around a fit for purpose induction/onboarding process that puts emphasis on understanding our culture as much as the key skill building blocks to handle their job role. You will be the SME for training and development in Simpsons and so will need prior experience around the development and delivery of training programmes and initiatives and it is likely that this experience has been gained in a manufacturing or distribution environment. Experience in training delivery is certainly no handicap.
