Manager of Investments Training Design & Development - Rancho Cordova, CA
At Franklin Templeton Investments, we are dedicated to delivering strong results and exceptional service to clients, team members and business partners. Over 9,000 employees working in 60 offices around the world are dedicated to servicing investment solutions for our clients in more than 150 countries. For over 65 years, our success has been a direct result of the talent, skills and persistence of our people, and we are looking for qualified candidates to join our team.
The Franklin Templeton Academy, a business unit within Franklin Templeton Investments, seeks a talented, highly organized, energetic manager to lead its learning design and development organization.
As the right candidate, you will be based in either Rancho Cordova (Sacramento), California, or St. Petersburg (Tampa), Florida and report to the Vice President, Global Head of the Academy. The role has an international scope, requiring 3-6 weeks annual travel between Florida and California, and potentially to international locations in Poland, India, and elsewhere.
The team you will lead is comprised of 6-8 experienced instructional designers and developers split between our locations. The work is deadline-sensitive and requires a disciplined but diplomatic touch to ensure obligations are met. As is sometimes said, “optimism is a force multiplier," and you create a can-do work environment that fosters productivity and engagement.
Your experience demonstrates a rare combination of project management, emotional intelligence, creativity, and superlative communications skills and business writing. You have an eye for aesthetics, appeal, and accuracy, but an appreciation of the balance between “perfect" and “good enough." You build things that teach, but further create experiences that surprise and delight our professional audience.
You will lead content development that supports both internal Franklin Templeton staff and external, extended enterprise customers in multiple languages at financial institutions around the world. This includes curriculum delivered in classroom and virtual instructor-led training, and self-paced learning which employs video and interactivity. You're expected to think strategically with the latitude to innovate.
We leverage best-in-class tools, including Articulate 360, Camtasia, Captivate, The Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, video production tools, Allego, WebEx, ON24, Docebo, and more. These help us create engaging, blended learning experiences. You have solid experience in these or similar platforms, and should expect, on occasion, to actively roll up your sleeves with the team when needed to get the job done.
Financial markets knowledge or experience is a very significant advantage, but it's less critical than reliable project management and other attributes previously described. While instructional design is important, your previous work may have included creative services or marketing production.
