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).

Essential Duties:

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

Qualifications/Requirements:

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.

Disclosure:

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.

Just wanted to provide an update. I learned the company is interested in candidates that could work out of one of their branch network locations, which include the following US states: NY, NJ, MD, VA, PA, OH, KY, TN, DE and IN.

Sorry I didn't have this information when this was initially posted.
