We are currently recruiting for a Learning Designer within our L&D team at Carpetright. You will be responsible for taking the agreed training needs and designing great learning interventions to develop knowledge, skills and behavioural capability across all levels at Carpetright.

We are the UK's largest retailer of carpets, flooring and beds and for over 30 years, we’ve helped people transform their homes through finding the flooring that’s right for their lifestyle.

We have exciting growth plans and we would love for you to be a part of it!

What you will be doing:

  • Create fresh dynamic content, a leading-edge design style, focus on detail and highly creative use of all media available.
  • Maintaining material to ensure it is up to date and continues to meet the business needs, recommending and implementing changes where appropriate.
  • Ensuring the training need is clear and agreed ahead of the development of any interventions.
  • Creating innovative and high-quality modules with a truly interactive and engaging look and feel. Ensuring learners feel keen to complete these modules, because they have a reputation in the business for being fun, engaging, enjoyable, practical and highly effective at developing skills.
  • Designing all post-module activity, ongoing support and assessment in line with the established framework.
  • Working with the L&D team to ensure all activities are joined with the agreed frameworks of our blended learning approach.
  • Using feedback to identify opportunities for improvement in content and delivery.

What we are looking for:

  • Demonstrable and practical knowledge and experience of all elements of the training cycle.
  • Thorough and current knowledge of design techniques, and experience of designing interventions ready for conversion to digital based learning.
  • CIPD Level 3 or equivalent Training Qualification i.e. TAP.
  • Creative flair and the ability to take agreed objectives and turn them into inspirational programmes which capture, enthuse and develop our learners.
  • Highly organised with a strong attention to detail.
  • The ability to effectively manage a varied workload, sometimes with conflicting priorities
  • Experience designing and implementing learning programmes which are then implemented through authoring tools such as Captivate, Articulate, Evolve or similar.

The role is based at our Purfleet office (when we are back in the office) and is Monday to Friday. We have free parking on site, lovely food in our on-site subsidised staff restaurant and a friendly bunch of people to work with!
