Learning & Development Manager

What makes this role special is the environment in which you will operate. Our learning interventions are not just about teaching the next trick or skill…they are about passing on our knowledge and culture and sustaining our community over generations. We realize that we can only hope to preserve our unique culture if we invest in connecting with our people regularly in transferring our specific way of working and knowledge, while at the same time using these learning moments to underpin and reinforce the trust in our relationships. We are a winning company for exactly this reason. Our success is built on our ability to keep investing in trust as a basis for running a company in a world increasingly dominated by compliance and control.

What is your role?

The L&D Manager is embedded in the Global HR team. De Heus HR is on a journey to professionalize the HR services in support of the growth of the company.
