Location: Hobart

  • Influential role, partner with leadership to develop and embed our learning strategy
  • Brand new role, opportunity to innovate
  • Flexible work options

Exciting opportunity to redesign the way Learning and Development is offered across the state’s largest tourism and hospitality employer. 

The Company:

Federal Group is on an exciting transformation journey involving its diverse range of Tasmanian businesses.  The company operates Wrest Point and Country Club Tasmania casino resorts, and award-winning hotels MACq 01, Saffire Freycinet and Henry Jones.  Federal Group also owns Vantage Group which has 12 community hotels across Tasmania and the 9/11 Bottleshop chain.  While each business has its own iconic brand and signature products and experiences, together they represent the very best of Tasmania and share one goal - to deliver excellence in all that we do.  Federal Group is proudly one of the state’s largest employers and is committed to continued investment in the people and places of Tasmania.

The role:

This is a brand new role that has been developed in response to business wide strategic initiatives and a genuine desire to offer more development opportunities to our workforce. 

Reporting to the Chief People and Culture Manager, you will work closely with business unit managers to develop and design interactive and memorable learning experiences that will balance the needs of building competency and employee engagement across our businesses. 

As the Learning and Development Manager, your responsibilities will include:

  • Working closely with business unit managers to develop eLearning modules and other tools and resources to support our workforce.
  • Providing specialist advice and direction on learning and development strategies and learning requirements, including identifying skill gaps.
  • Managing and improving Federal Groups internal communications to ensure employees are informed and engaged.
  • Using a range of tools and methods to design learning interventions that are blended in nature and offer variety in their application (i.e. eLearning, on-the-job, through exposure or formal classroom learning)
  • Acting as a subject matter expert in reviewing material completed by the business and/or other Learning and Development resources to ensure that the learning has been designed in accordance with agreed processes
  • Facilitating training across various learning streams and subject areas.  

The person:

This role will be a perfect fit for someone who is equally as comfortable playing a hands-on role as they are developing strategy. 

To be successful in securing this role you will have the following skills and experience:

  • Demonstrated experience building a Learning & Development strategy through to execution
  • Experience understanding business strategy, and the ability to develop and implement learning programs to support business goals
  • Exceptional stakeholder management abilities, with strong skills in collaboration, influencing and adaptability
  • A strategic and critical thinker who enjoys collaboration and perspective taking
  • Most importantly, you will share our values and be energised by undertaking purposeful work in a collaborative, supporting and flexible working environment.

Whilst this is a management position, we will consider applications from experienced L&D professionals who feel ready to take the step into management but may not yet have had an opportunity to hold a management position.

Culture and Benefits

At Federal Group, we celebrate diversity and inclusivity and pride ourselves on being collaborative.  We believe we do our best work when we harness the perspectives and experiences of our team.  

We value our people and as a Learning and Development Manager you will not only have the opportunity to implement initiatives that aid in growing and shaping the skills of our workforce, but you will also be encouraged to continue growing your own professional development.

As an employee of Federal Group we will provide you with a competitive remuneration package and various discounts across our businesses.
