About Us

Do you want to work for a global professional membership organisation where you will be able to see the tangible impact of your work on the world we all live in? If so, we could be the organisation for you. We are the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and we are at the heart of a management career in construction.

We are the world's largest and most influential professional body for construction management and leadership, and our members work worldwide in the development, conservation and improvement of the built environment. Perhaps most importantly, we are tasked with promoting good practice within our industry to improve quality of life for every one of us.


About the Role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Training Manager to join us and work closely with senior representatives from across the construction industry to develop CIOB Academy standard training courses, bespoke training proposals, and oversee their implementation and assessment of the outcomes. This is an excellent opportunity to develop a training business, bring your creativity and passion to your work, and make a real difference to the industry. This role will report directly to the Head of CIOB Academy and will manage the Training Coordinator.

Identifying and assessing current and future commercial training needs of construction managers and construction businesses; you will lead on bespoke training proposals, build strong relationships and set up/develop internal processes for the management and delivery of qualifications, short courses, residential programmes and online/blended learning.

Managing incoming enquiries and contributing to the management and ongoing development of the Academy online platform, LMS, and marketing materials; you will manage the applications process, for all qualifications and certifications and help develop new and existing routes, into Academy courses. You will monitor and evaluate the training program’s effectiveness, success and ROI periodically, whilst maintaining a keen understanding of training trends, developments and best practices.


What we’re looking for…

We’re looking for an individual who has excellent communication and leadership skills along with demonstrable experience at product management level within the training qualification or education field. With the ability to plan, multi-task and manage time effectively, you will have a good track record of designing and executing successful training programs and be familiar with traditional and modern training methods such as; face to face, distance learning, blended learning and eLearning.

Experience of the construction and built environment sector would be a significant advantage, however this is not essential.


What you might be asking is – why work for us?

We can offer you a really friendly, flexible and welcoming working environment. We’ll show you that we’re committed to your personal wellbeing and to your development within your role, and we’ll make sure that you’re constantly learning throughout your time with us. We even hold a Silver Investors in People Award – which we really hope will show you our commitment to this.

No two days will be the same in this exciting position, so if you thrive in an ever changing environment and love to get your teeth into a real challenge then this could be the role for you!
