How You’re a Great Fit (Education and Experience)
You are results driven and curious
3+ years in HVAC or another trade
5+ years of Curriculum Development
10+ years of continually advancing experience in envisioning, developing, delivering, and monitoring an innovative Training & Development program
You are committed to being approachable, innovative, and excited for the team
In either an academic environment, a corporate setting, or ideally a mix of both you will have had experiences leading the development of an engaging, flexible, and comprehensive TD&I curriculum. You will have deep understanding of different learning styles and how to blend engagement tactics to reach team members of all backgrounds and career goals.
You will bring a passion for the front-line, blue-collar, field-based nature of much of our workforce, either having come up in the trades yourself or have demonstrable credibility that you “get” the key needs and aspirations of our industry. You will have the background and style to easily relate to hourly employees, along with the experience and gravitas to be a peer and leadership voice within the Senior Leadership Team and the Boardroom.
You will ideally have led large-scale change and best practice implementation efforts across a complex, multi-site business of scale. Having done so in a T&D role is a plus, however your ability to drive transformational change is the key prerequisite.
A background working in fast-paced, ongoing M&A would be a plus, including an ability to rapidly build rapport and trust with acquired business teams
After a phone screen with an Aspire recruiter, you will have a virtual interview with a member of the client’s HR Department, followed by a virtual interview with the company’s C-Suite representatives, before moving on to a an assessment and an in-person interview.
