We are searching for a dutiful Training Officer to fulfill the educational requirements of new and existing staff. The Training Officer should administer needs assessments, gauge skills shortages, and then address these through tailored training programs. You should also ensure the effectiveness of your instruction by monitoring performance post-intervention.

To ensure success as a Training Officer, you should be non-judgmental and supportive of staff's willingness to develop their skills. Ultimately, a top-notch Training Officer will grasp that staff may not always be forthcoming in disclosing their difficulties, and will navigate this roadblock successfully.

  • Addressing skills deficits through tailored in-house training.
  • Coordinating external training as the need arises.
  • Monitoring staffs' performance by liaising with line managers and department heads.
  • Availing yourself as a sounding board for all employees with the explicit aim of improving their orientation and training.
  • Upholding confidentiality, unless legally mandated to do otherwise.

Training Officer Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree with an appropriate Business Science major is preferred.
  • Qualification in Instruction and/or Learning Design is advantageous.
  • Demonstrable experience as a Training Officer.
