Director, Emerson University

Alameda, California
Emerson Human Capital Internal Organization – Quality and Training
You’ve built training departments, leadership development curricula, and hi-po programs. You’ve figured out delivery systems that really deliver. You’re a rocking facilitator. You easily move between strategy and implementation. You geek out on research and you love applying it to business. Your team loves you and you love them. But lately, there’s been a hole. 

You wish you had the opportunity to be a little more creative. You wish there was a little less admin and a lot more impact. You wish you were not overhead, or a loss leader, something to be “thrown in” to sweeten a sales agenda. You wish you could build something that was an essential part of the core business. Maybe we should talk.

We are looking for someone to:

    • Bottle our secret sauce and ensure our people deliver a consistently exemplary client experience.
    • Develop our people for every stage in their career.
    • Keep our team on the cutting edge of their craft.
    • Create a program our clients will admire and demand.

You’ll oversee the design, development and implementation of our consultant development program. This means you have mastery in:

    • instructional strategy, delivery & systems
    • all facets of learning, including competency, design, development, implementation & evaluation
    • program and project management

You have:

    • An advanced degree in instructional design or equivalent
    • Built a corporate learning function, ideally for consultants
    • The desire to work an entrepreneurial company where you have a direct impact on the company’s success
To check your fit with our organization’s unique culture, please check us out and/or follow us on Facebook (@EmersonHumanCapitalConsulting) and Twitter (@emersonhumancap). And take a look at Trish’s blog (
