Job Description

Our people are our biggest asset and it's no surprise that one of our main priorities is to ensure we provide opportunities for them to develop their skills and progress their careers. 

This is a new and exciting FTC role for us. In conjunction with the Head of Talent and the wider People team you’ll proactively scope, design and implement new process, programs or solutions to address gaps around talent, culture and business that will impact Genomics England.

You'll nurture the whole process, from assessing both specific and broad training needs to the design, delivery, evaluation and administration of courses, through to tracking attendance and reporting in line with ISO compliance.

You'll empower employees, managers and leaders to feel ownership of their professional and personal growth through impactful programming and delivery of programs, toolkits and other resources. As well as this, you'll be a trusted advisor, offering insight and recommending solutions and supporting the Head of Talent and People Partner with projects such as succession planning and strategies to drive OKRs.
