Want to help us create future Game Changers?

As a retail trainer within our People and Culture team where you’ll be responsible for driving the learning and development strategy with a primary focus on the selling programme integration. We’ll look to you to shape and deliver creative learning and training solutions to support our new and existing colleagues through their development journey with Vision Express.

What can you expect from the role?

You’ll deliver and support the integration and implentation of our new work with our L&D managers and learning specialists to identify requirements across the business from onboarding our new customer experience programme and enable our colleagues to bring our customer journey to life. We’ll look to you to support store performance by coaching our managers or working on more broad development solutions both planned and ad-hoc.

You’ll work closely with our operational teams to ensure that these solutions support the performance of our stores and partner with our Regional Managers to identify more local development opportunities.

We’ll look to you to support the creation of new learning content, create visibility of our L&D offer to our colleagues and to continually review this to ensure our learning content is meeting our high achieving performance culture.

You’ll lead in the delivery of programmes, online and face to face, reviewing completion levels and evaluating the effectiveness of the training delivered.

Here at Vision Express we win together, so all our colleagues have a role to play in making our customers and colleagues feel special. It’s up to you to bring our brand to life and be involved in shaping our success. 

You can expect a busy but high achieving environment with a purpose, culture, and values to match, where everyone is working towards the same goal: creating joy in vision for our colleagues and customers.
