Manager / Senior Associate role – length flexible

Working in Learning and Development (L&D), reporting to the Technical Content Senior Manager, the Risk Assurance (RA) Technical Author is responsible for the development of RA technical learning content which includes all entry routes and market areas (e.g. Technology Assurance, Business, Risks and Controls, Apprenticeships and Interns) as well as proposition training from Associate to Partner. We operate in a strict regulatory environment based on defined learning objectives, findings from regulatory reviews and input from various subject matter experts (SMEs).

The work undertaken and the specific projects you will be involved with will be based on your skillset and areas of expertise and interests. A background working in RA is preferable but not mandatory. You will be expected to maintain and update your technical expertise, your links with your home business unit, and current engagements as required.

The role

The RA Technical Author is responsible for applying foundation design skills in conjunction with their technical RA expertise to develop RA training material for classroom or technology-enabled solutions. As current client facing practitioners, the authors are the first line of defence to ensure materials are technically accurate, however, they will work closely with the relevant SMEs.

Specifically, they will be responsible for designing and writing RA technical learning materials in partnership with experienced L&D professionals including both new content required to address emerging business requirements, and substantial tailoring of existing UK content to reflect changing business requirements. This will be across a range of delivery approaches, e.g. face-to-face sessions, simulation or elearn.
