Your customer-centric approach is just what we need in an Instructional Designer.

Joining our Operational Learning team in a temporary role, you’ll work with clients to identify their training needs and develop effective and innovative learning solutions based on client requirements.

Before you start building excellent training programs, you build honest and effective relationships with your clients. You know the best ideas come from collaboration, and you’re motivated to think outside the box when developing unique solutions.

We've committed to building a greener future with our 30BY30 promise to reduce our customer's emissions by 30 per cent by the year 2030. We need collaborators, innovators and leaders like yourself to help us achieve our goal, and join us in rethinking our energy future.

In this role, you will:

  • A diploma in Instructional Design, Adult Learning or a related discipline from an accredited post-secondary institution, plus three years recent, related experience or an equivalent combination of education, training and experience.
  • Demonstrated experience with instructional design software.
  • A collaborative approach to working with clients, subject matter experts and peers.
