PSS in a nutshell

At PSS, we’ve got an important job to do; and that’s to help people make the most of their lives – whatever life throws at them. Whether you’re working directly with the people who use our services, or behind the scenes in one of our offices, every day you’ll be helping to make other people feel happier, healthier and more supported.

We’re a social enterprise or, as we like to call it – a ‘business with a heart’. This means that all the money we make goes back into finding new ways to support people. We’ve got offices across Merseyside, Wales, Manchester and the Midlands, where we’re making our stamp.

What’s our learning and development team all about?

This year, PSS celebrates 100 years of being around and there’s no secret to why we’re looking this great at 100 years old. It’s a product of our genuine, determined, open-minded, professional and big-hearted staff, who truly go the extra mile to make sure that we’re awesome. Our learning and development team are the powerhouse behind this, providing people with the tools, the knowledge and the confidence they need to keep on being the best they can be in their job roles.

It’s our mission to be around for future generations which means we never want to stop being innovative and challenging the boundaries of the support we provide to so many people. Staff expertise are a big deal around here– and for good reason; the people who use our services deserve nothing less than the most top-notch support.  In order to achieve this, it’s crucial that our people never stop learning and developing, making this a tremendously important team to be a part of.

Our learning and development team are based in our brand new head office, Eleanor Rathbone House (named after our formidable and very forward-thinking founder). This is just a hop, skip and a jump (if you’re the energetic sort we’re after) from Sandhills train station in Liverpool.

What you’ll do as a learning technology coordinator

If someone can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn. At PSS, we’re open-minded enough to see that minds come in many different shapes and sizes. To support people to grow, we need to figure out what makes them tick, what motivates them and what gives them the little bit of oomph they need to keep on doing what they do.

As learning technology coordinator it’ll be your core purpose to uncover these little nuggets of wisdom, the things that make people unique and to ensure our learning programs are built with people in mind. You’ll work with the learning and development team to create and spruce up online learning modules to support ‘at the point of need’ learning across the organisation. You’ll develop these to suit a range of different people in a range of different roles. You’ll have a hat that fits each and every one of them.

We’re on the look-out for someone who’s all about thinking creatively, keeping an eye on the latest trends and developments in the learning world and being super innovative. It’ll be your job to feedback what’s new with learning, what trends might look good on us and to really get people excited about growing their knowledge.

You’ll need:

  • Some experience of working within a learning and development team (or similar – e.g. training organisation, Human Resources) to support the delivery of effective learning solutions
  • Experience with learning management systems, IT skills and information to support the delivery of learning and development opportunities
  • To be a real people person. We’re looking for someone who can build and maintain good relationships with people right across PSS as well as other external suppliers.
  • A fire in your belly. Self-belief and drive, along with a positive and ‘can do’ attitude

Candidates who consider themselves to be disabled will also be given the opportunity to attend an interview if they meet the essential criteria for the role
