Training manager - technology

Have you been looking for an opportunity to manage a national training team?  Are you able to challenge the status quo on how things are done to drive continuous improvement and efficiencies?  Do you want to work in an environment where you feel valued, connected and supported, allowing you to step up into an impactful and rewarding role? 

We are looking for a training manager who is an IT/software specialist who is ready to roll up their sleeves and take our training offering to the next level. 

This position can be based in Auckland or Wellington.

The national training manager will play an integral role within the IT team to grow the firm's training programme, recommend changes and apply modern training techniques to all they do.  You will lead a national team with a trainer in both Auckland and Wellington, identify new opportunities and deliver on-going skills training to support growth and development across the firm nationally.

Your commitment to creating proactive and long-term relationships, providing positive interactions with new joiners, employees and other stakeholders by walking the floor and talking to people, and your strong sense of urgency, will see you thrive as the training manager in a busy and fun environment. 

What matters to us

This role goes beyond training.  You will think creatively, be committed to the long game and will value long term relationships, creative thinking and adaptability over process.  You will pride yourself on your flexibility and ability to deliver to the changing needs of the firm.  You will be innovative and impactful in how you and your team deliver training nationally.

As the training manager, you will support the IT team to deliver 'help desk' software support and provide training on laptops along with key projects whilst having an opportunity to work on new initiatives to help make Buddle Findlay an even better place to work.

About you

You may be a regional training manager looking for a national leadership opportunity.  Your strength will be in your flexibility and ability to adapt to the needs of the day and find workable, creative solutions.

This is the perfect opportunity for someone with passion, ambition and who thrives on continuous improvement to achieve greater results.  If you have a strong sense of client service, a track record of training in a fast-paced environment and are keen for a challenging, engaging and rewarding opportunity, this could be the opportunity for you.  We are interested in hearing from applicants from a variety of industry sectors (experience working at a law firm is not required).

What we offer

A career with us gives you the opportunity to work with a diverse range of people within an internationally recognised law firm, alongside some of New Zealand's leading legal talent to shape the future of business in New Zealand.  We offer a range of benefits, wellbeing, community, and flexible working initiatives, enabling you to be the best you can be:

  • An extensive professional development programme (courses, seminars, CPD and more)
  • A range of leave benefits (parental, study, long service leave, and a Buddle Findlay day)
  • Flexible working options to suit your most productive working style
  • Regular social, sports and wellness events, charity initiatives, and opportunities to join various committees within the firm (eg diversity and inclusion committee)
  • Competitive salary, health insurance benefits and an employee assistance programme.

Harri (talent attraction specialist from our people and culture team) is keen to talk with anyone interested in this opportunity – reach out to him for a confidential conversation at 09 363 0607 or at or connect with him on LinkedIn.

We look forward to you joining our team and being part of our success.
