We are looking for an experienced and creative Learning Designer to support the Custom Programmes team in developing an innovative and differentiated learning design strategy for our clients. The most successful Executive Education programmes are designed as a result of a creative process, which has its foundations in clients’ needs and the academic and analytic strengths of our faculty. Creativity in design requires innovative thinking and often unconventional approaches, our aim is to recruit a programme design specialist with a track record in this field.

With focus on our custom programme offering, which includes online, live online and face-to-face learning solutions, the post holder will work closely with our clients, faculty, business development teams and other digital learning design and media specialist colleagues to explore creative ways to introduce new learning solutions which combine the academic and research strengths of the University of Cambridge with practical and grounded delivery models. This will include curating and implementing world-class, innovative learning solutions which combine premium Cambridge content and research with innovative methods (eg simulations, apps, business games, immersions, role plays), and the latest educational technologies (e digital learning, virtual classrooms, virtual reality (VR)/augmented reality (AR), AI-driven personalisation, digital learning platforms) across face-to-face, live virtual, blended and digital modalities.

About you

You will have extensive experience of designing learning solutions for complex problems and within complex client environments, preferably across face to face, blended, live online and digital modalities. You will be behaviourally oriented towards innovation, continuous improvement, creativity, and experimentation. Strong knowledge and understanding of learning styles and appropriate pedagogical approaches which facilitate understanding and the transfer of learning, are essential along with the ability to advise and influence clients and teams accordingly. You will have an excellent client-facing ability to communicate innovative learning design concepts and be able to tell a narrative across a programme and be able to devise and implement agreed metrics to assess return on investment. A CIPD or equivalent qualification in scoping and designing learning solutions would be advantageous, as would experience of working with Fortune 500 organisations and an understanding of Business School Executive Education, professional services learning solutions or the edtech environment.
