Baltimore-area company seeks Instructional Design Manager
A colleague of mine has joined a Baltimore-based financial company and is launching their training department. He is seeking to fill a few positions (full time ID and ID Manager positions and possibly part time contract workers).
Although remote work is possible, strong preference would be given to local candidates. For remote workers, there would be an expectation of significant on-site presence for the first few months (just trying to frame expectations so everyone is advised).
The standard ID skill-set is an expectation, but the company is highly interested in standardizing on Storyline as their development tool. So, I feel this is the best forum to explore available talent.
Here are additional details from a rough-draft of the job description (as this is a new department, you will see this is getting in on the front end, and influencing how systems change as the department matures).
• Conduct assessments to identify training needs and requirements
• Develop learning objectives to ensure content meets business goals
• Develop materials for instructor-led training, e-learning courses, and other learning programs
• Assist in evaluating effectiveness of training programs-including development of learning metrics. Modify and update course materials based on findings
• Identify and recommend future system upgrades and changes
• Bachelor’s Degree in Instructional Design/Development or related field. Master’s preferred
• 2-5 years of work experience
• Demonstrated proficiency using tools such as Articulate – Storyline
• Previous consumer finance or banking industry experience preferred
• Highly proficient in Microsoft Office Products including Word, Excel and PowerPoint
• Ability to travel 20% of the time
If this seems a fit with your skills and interests, please reach out to me. I've been asked to help him find really good candidates to build the department.
I have no vested interest in the company in any manner. This is just a friend looking to launch a training department who I like and respect. I want to see it succeed, and hope to make a good match for talented L&D folks who this would be a great fit for.
And I know this is the place to look.
