Location: Rushden, Northamptonshire with flexible/hybrid working available
Contract: Fixed Term Contract (9 months), full-time - flexible and part-time hours available if desired, just let us know.


In this Administrator role, you'll support the transition to our new Learning Management System and have a key role within the implementation project team. You will upskill on Kallidus Academy, to understand how the system works and network with our L & D reps to develop ways of working. You'll also attend workshops for Learn to see how Kallidus will be built to facilitate Kier's learn courses and content and support with allocating mandatory training out to users. Data collation will be a key aspect of the role to analyse activities for the Learn history and provide support with the user acceptance testing (UAT) of content to ensure they are loaded into the platform.

Who are we looking for?

We're looking for a strong background in administration and/or customer service with good communication skills (both written and verbal).

An ability to work to tight deadlines, adapt in a fast-paced environment and able to work with sensitive information is key for this role.

We're all about finding potential here at Kier, and transferable skills are always welcome! So even if you don't tick every box, please apply and we can have a chat. We want to hear from candidates from all backgrounds and experiences, and we especially encourage those from underrepresented communities to get in touch with us.
