Facebook Senior Learning and Development Consultant, APAC (Based in Singapore) in Los Angeles, California
Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.
Facebook is a culture of curious and adaptive learners. Our people are naturally thirsty for opportunities to learn new things in pursuit of building an incredible product experience for the people that use our service. In support of this, the Learning & Development team at Facebook are committed to helping build the organisation as a socially committed community of learners.
At Facebook, we believe that the keys to personal growth & success are rooted in how you leverage your strengths to have impact. For this reason we work as a small consulting team, and we partner with business and HR leaders to find and propagate these opportunities.
As a means to support the expansion of demand for our work and support, we are hiring a Senior Learning & Development Consultant, to be based in our Singapore. Reporting to the Director of Learning and Development, Asia Pacific and Latin America, this individual contributor role will lead and execute on a number of important coaching and team development initiatives at Facebook, across all functions and geographies in the APAC region.
Partner HR Business Partners, Sales Leaders and L&D colleagues regionally and globally to identify ‘root cause’ current and future business needs that leverage the core of our learning programs, frameworks and other best practices to help individuals and teams excel.
Facebook teams are dynamic and growing rapidly. Structures are evolving, and this role will focus on working and coaching personally (consult/design/facilitate) with high priority intact teams to ensure they are and remain as effective (impact, engaged, innovative) as possible.
Provide 1:1 executive development advise for and partnering with business managers and leaders, especially as it relates to their personal as well as organizational needs and the subsequent needs of their teams to learn, grow and thrive.
Design and execute innovative ‘out of classroom’ executive learning that enables building a continuous learning culture and that supports leaders getting just in time, just enough and just-for-them learning
To be successful, you will need to roll up your sleeves, and get things done quickly. You will need to be both effective in articulating complex strategies/concept well and be reliable and effective in personal execution. We believe in ship and iterate, not prepare for perfection.
You should have strong L&D experience, but you will need to let go and (ideally will already have experienced the limitations) of the ‘learning happens in a classroom/workshop’ and ‘L&D control what and when people learn’ philosophies. Our mission is to connect people who have something to teach with those who are ready to learn
To be successful you will need to get energy from continual close partnerships with L&D / Learning colleagues and HR Business Partners.
You will need to prioritise and manage your time and energy expertly, there will always be too much to do.
You will need to be part of many teams and have the passion to deliver with and through others – and build great relationships along the way. Facebook runs on communities and these will be key to your success
You will need to be able to handle continuous change and ambiguity and make decisions based on incomplete data. We are building as we scale!
You should not take yourself too seriously, we want to do fabulous work, but also enjoy the journey. Life’s too short not to be authentic and have fun.
You need to be ready to be perpetually outside of your comfort zone, be resilient and prepared to fail, it’s the best way of grow and do your best work ever!
