Learning and Development Manager

£35,000 - £45,000 + 27 days annual leave + pension + additional benefits



We are currently recruiting for an experienced and passionate Learning and Development Manager to design, develop and implement training and development programmes to enhance core skills and capability across the Contact Centre at all levels.

Market Overview

Dyson is rapidly expanding; in its new and core categories, and across all of its global markets. The next four years are going to be Dyson’s biggest and busiest yet. By 2020, we'll be hitting £4 billion in revenue. We'll have brought in 5,000 more people. And we'll have launched a further four brand new product categories. With this pace of growth, these ambitious plans, and the complexities of global expansion, it is natural that Dyson is now thinking about the best ways to organise itself and manage its exciting new product ranges to best effect.

Function Overview

Dyson’s culture is unique; dynamic, inventive, technology-obsessed and decidedly un-corporate. The mindset is geared to constant change and Dyson’s pace brings constant challenge. It’s not easy or comfortable, but it’s this way of working that drives performance. Dyson suits people with the courage and resilience to find their own way, spotting opportunities where others don’t, and having the self-belief to persevere where others give up. “Good enough” isn’t good enough. Experiences are more important than experience. And attitude counts as much as aptitude.

  • Leading and developing the existing training team by coaching, leading, managing and motivating to ensure that the highest level of training is being delivered

  • Acting as a role model for the Trainers to create and reinforce a proactive, positive, professional and respectful culture across the Contact Centre

  • Leading sessions at monthly Managers meeting to develop overall management capability.

  • Supporting the wider Contact Centre Management Team to ensure that meaningful career conversations happen and PDPs are in place to support individual development and succession planning.



  • Previous exposure to a Customer Service environment is preferred

  • Relevant qualification in training delivery is desirable but not essential

  • Training design and delivery in large, matrix organisations

  • Product and soft skills training

  • Understanding the sales through service model

  • Understanding of standard Contact Centre working practices

Benefits Overview

Dyson offers competitive salaries, 27 days annual leave and pension contributions. Professional opportunities, leadership development and a relaxed dress code are just some of the reasons Dyson is different.
