Job Description for ID and SID

Jun 10, 2015

I was recently promoted to Talent Development Manager. I have an instructional designer and senior instructional designer reporting to me.  I found out that my company doesn't have a job description for the senior instructional designer and the instructional designer job description has not been updated in a while.  If anyone has one or both job descriptions I would really appreciate it if you will share them with me.  I have to write the SID job description so I'm looking for some examples. I've done some Google searches and found some job postings but sometimes they are not as detailed as an actual job description.
