Design South East is hiring a training manager to join its team in Kent or London, UK.
Are you looking for a change of direction? Do you want to widen your range of experience and build your knowledge and networks? Do you want to be part of the country’s fastest growing design support organisation?
Thanks to increased demand for our services Design South East is recruiting for a new post of training manager.
Who would you be working for?
We are an independent charity dedicated to improving the quality of design in the built environment. We have a small staff team of design professionals and project managers. We work in a highly mobile way with two hubs in London and Kent but mainly out in the field, building relationships with local authorities, facilitating advice services and learning events.
Why are we hiring?
Unprecedented housing growth is creating new issues for our cities, towns and villages; densification of traditional centres, urban extensions into the greenbelt, new garden villages. We provide cost-effective, accessible expertise to bring practical solutions to design challenges. As more and more hard-pressed local authorities get to know how our help can transform the way they deal with design in the planning system, we need to grow our team.
Your workload will be varied. No two days will be the same and you will engage with some of the most exciting, intriguing and challenging projects in the country. You will be working at the interface between public and private sectors and helping us improve the quality of the built environment by raising skills, knowledge and awareness among public and private sector professionals, facilitating networking and collaboration.
This is a new post created to manage our growing portfolio of training contracts, CPD programmes and one-off events. The purpose of this role is to research, develop, plan and programme our training and networking events and programmes. You will work closely with our clients and with other members of the team, responding to demand for the knowledge and skills the public and private sectors need to deliver quality places.
The deadline to apply is 12 noon Monday 1 April 2019.
