Head of Academy

This important and exciting role will lead both the existing Evidensia Academy in Denmark and the IVC Academy in the UK to create one new Academy for our combined business.  The role will be responsible for the design and delivery of clinical and non-clinical learning and development projects across the group to deliver best value. 
The job holder needs to understand group and country specific business strategy and training needs.  Close liaison with Country CEO’s and taking advice from internal clinical groups and experts in a structured manner is essential.
An understanding of leading a commercial learning and development function is also required to manage the finance dimensions of the Academy. 
To succeed you must be very self-motivated with the ability to work unsupervised.  This is an international role and can be based from home but a full driving licence is essential as is the willingness to travel extensively to all countries in the group and stay away overnight.  You must also be comfortable and confident using English as a business language.
A veterinary clinical background (nurse or vet) or an in depth knowledge of the job roles and training requirements in the veterinary (or similar) sector would be an advantage
This role will report to Richard Parker, Director of Human Resources
