Role Profile

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join our vibrant, fast paced People Team as a Learning and Development Partner.  If you like the responsibility of supporting people to grow, this could be the role for you.

You’ll get to regularly work with key stakeholders throughout our company by identifying skills and capability gaps, and produce effective learning solutions to support the needs of our colleagues and ScS.

You will be using a blended learning approach that includes creating e-lessons, delivering virtual and face to face workshops and facilitating 70:20:10 experiential leadership development programmes.

Exceptional communication skills and the ability to build a “family bond” will undoubtedly ensure you become a valued part of the furniture here at ScS.

All about ScS

ScS has been around for more than 125 years, and in that time we’ve got to know a thing or two about providing great furniture and flooring for our customers.

As a company our purpose is simple – we’re on a mission to help customers create a home they love. As part of our People team, you’ll be supporting us to make sure we’re creating a place people love to work too! Our Learning and Development Business Partner role has a huge part to play in helping to shape our culture.

Overall at ScS, there’s about 2,000 of us as part of the team and we’re all a canny bunch.

About you

The most important thing for us is that you’re the right fit for our team, so we’re looking for someone who’s creative, friendly and engaging, with lots of drive and initiative. As the role requires engaging with different audiences through a variety of media, the ability to design and deliver creative solutions is also a must-have for the role.

The kind of things you’ll be up to…

- Adapting your style for different audiences – using a blended learning approach

- Planning and delivering programmes against clear objectives

- Thinking outside the box and questioning the way we do things, to create a positive workplace for all

- Helping to embed our values, drive business goals, and project a positive culture
