On a global platform, you will operate as a crucial enabler to the continuous development and innovation of skills and learning within our business; taking inspiration from some of the brightest minds in our industry – from computational engineers to sustainability specialists and economists – you will help grow our people and deliver our strategy.  

 Be Challenged

 With us, your preconceptions will be tested, your resilience built, and your career enriched.

You will be delivering Buro Happold’s strategic learning and development priorities aligned to our future firm strategy and people plan, collaborating with our internal stakeholders and external consultants to design and deliver inspiring learning solutions that innovate, empower and engage our people globally.

  • Providing opportunities through learning programmes, online social tools, knowledge transfer and mentoring at all levels.
  • Working with technical teams globally; designing the development of learning initiatives to enhance technical and digital expertise/competence

  • Partnering with internal work groups to enhance our expertise related to global sustainability and climate change imperatives
  • Researching and developing online and digital learning solutions that can be scaled regionally and globally;
  • Supporting with the implementation of the L&D communication & engagement plan;
  • Researching and introducing a measurement/impact & evaluation process including ROI for strategic projects and L&D framework priorities;
  • Supporting the cultivation of online communities globally through social collaboration tools.  

Be Respected

We’ll help you meet your goals, respecting your ideas and fostering your creativity, collaboration and innovation.

Above all, you will be passionate about L&D and want to take both your career and learning outcomes forward for our business. Ideally, you’ll also have hands-on experience partnering with technical experts in a comparable context (e.g. engineering, tech, R&D, et al.), and be adept with the application of digital tools to deliver learning outcomes. 

Additionally, we would expect you to demonstrate the following…

  • Proven experience in L&D project/programme management with excellent planning & organisation skills;
  • Highly developed presentation and facilitation  skills with ability to operate at all levels of the organisation;
  • The ability to learn and adapt at pace in order to provide ideas and solutions across diverse contexts and stakeholder groups;
  • A good understanding of non-traditional approaches to learning and knowledge management – including the latest thinking in digital learning methodologies;
  • Some flexibility with regard to working hours and travel to accommodate a global L&D team and stakeholders.
  • Experience implementing an LMS (ideally in a global organisation).
