At BP, we’re striving to meet growing global demand for safe, sustainable and affordable energy. That means creating a more efficient, streamlined business that makes the best possible use of all its resources, including human resources.

We know that HR plays a key role in enhancing BP’s businesses and delivering our priorities. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for amazing professionals who are commercially aware, solutions-focused and driven to deliver value within our HR department, to the entire business.

About the opportunity

A leader and innovator, you’ll build a small, high-performing team, alongside which you’ll develop great solutions for formal learning, leveraging the latest leading methodologies. While it’s a technical role, you’ll play a key part in ensuring BP’s workforce is compliant and fit to work on our assets and within our businesses.

As HR innovation manager, you’ll be accountable for building a culture of creative thinking and informed risk for all those involved in Learning Services. You’ll be responsible for continuously challenging the status quo, researching current practices and coming up with new solutions.

You’ll schedule and set up lab sessions and events, tracking ideas and coordinating with external parties. Among other tasks, you’ll be asked to build an ‘ideation engine’, to consolidate ideas from various stakeholders. These ideas will then translate further into experiments and projects that will deliver great business solutions.

Furthermore, you’ll be planning and facilitating design-thinking, identifying sources for insights, reframing challenges and prepping projects for deployment by other teams.

Working with the GPO, you’ll also manage decisions around the Learning Services Operating Model including strategic sourcing design, strategic vendor decisions and the Learning Services catalogue. Additionally, in order to build the best possible pipeline of enhancement and features, you’ll hold the change controls for the model and the associated processes.

About you

You’ll bring us significant learning process or learning system implementation and maintenance experience, including process design or engineering. Your strong willingness to organise and facilitate people through all the stages of the creative process will add even more to your proven track record of taking things to the next level.

Up-to-date with the latest start-up methodologies, your entrepreneurial and strong organisational skills have pushed you to experiment with tech innovation techniques in the past. These traits will help you even further in your role, when discovering relevant industry insights in the entire formal learning value chain.

You take pride in your ability to work collaboratively and know how to manage impact on others. You’re actively aware of your team’s morale and constructively raise it whenever needed. Ultimately, your good written and verbal communication skills help you guide others with ease and integrity.

Degree-qualified (or equivalent) and digitally fluent, you will work with technology teams to build high-quality digital products and solutions. You must also have significant learning process or learning system implementation and maintenance experience.
