Virgin Orbit (VO) www.VirginOrbit.com is looking for the next crucial part of our Learning & Development team! We’re hiring a Senior People Learning & Development Program Manager to help us define and design an innovative and game-changing suite of training and development programs. We’re looking for just the right teammate to help us create our learning and development strategy for technical and job-specific programs. You’ll work with Managers and Senior Leaders to identify learning & performance needs and create a training curriculum for each role in the company. You’ll then coordinate efforts with the L&D Partner, internal subject matter experts, and external resources to design and deliver training and performance support across the company. You’ll also help transform superstar subject matter experts into dynamic facilitators and coaches. You’ll get to teach some, too, so you should have excellent facilitation skills (mentor like Yoda you must).
The most important skills you’ll need are strategy, communication, and project management. The ideal teammate will also have spent time in an engineering, manufacturing, aerospace, or similar field helping to build job skills and technical training and support. You’ll also need to be super comfortable working with a diverse set of stakeholders, generating creative solutions, and bringing some fun into dense, dry content.

You should be a “yes, and…” kind of person – a strategist, a designer, a facilitator, a project manager.
We’re looking for a rock star, and we’re not willing to settle. We have a green and open field just waiting for the right person to come build something great. If you’re the one, we need to talk!
If you want to join us, you’d better have all of these…
