The energy of a newsroom, the pace of a trading floor, the buzz of a recent tech breakthrough; we work hard, and we work fast - while keeping up the quality and accuracy we're known for. It's what keeps us inventing and reinventing, all the time. Our culture is wide open like our spaces. We bring out the best in each other through collaboration. Through our countless volunteer projects, we also help network with the communities around us, too. You can do amazing work here. Work you couldn't do anywhere else. It's up to you to make it happen.

What’s the role?

We are Leadership & Talent Development. Our team is a group of leadership, learning and organizational development specialists working alongside HR Talent Partners, HR Business Partners and business leaders. We use a broad approach to developing learning solutions and talent strategies, always taking into account Bloomberg's global scope and diverse businesses. We support Bloomberg's overall business goals by serving as partners and consultants, helping to engage and activate the potential of all talent.

You'll be part of a global leadership and talent development team that evaluates, designs, and delivers the core leadership curriculum from aspiring leaders to senior managers, ensuring Bloomberg attracts, retains, and advances our greatest asset - our people. As a member of the Global Leadership & Talent Development team's Center of Excellence, you’ll collaborate with Global Talent Partners and other HR practitioners to understand the talent and leadership development needs to build and deliver a holistic set of learning solutions across the enterprise. You’ll be tasked to link leadership development to business performance, ensuring that your solutions are culturally relevant, scalable, and aligned to our global business priorities.

In addition to supporting our leaders in the Americas, you will work closely with Talent Development teams in EMEA and APAC to develop our leaders and teams around the globe.

You are passionate about leadership development and learning solutions. You bring your expertise and experience in adult learning and leadership development to our businesses. You thrive as an exceptional multi-tasker and problem-solver who thinks fast and adapts quickly to change, and is happy to be "hands-on" in all aspects of our team's work. Most of all, you lead with a client-service mindset, complemented with outstanding critical thinking and communication skills. You’re someone who thinks globally, but acts locally - customizing solutions to meet the needs of our local businesses while keeping in mind the larger goals and objectives at the enterprise level. 

We'll trust you to:

  • Proactively build relationships with business leaders to understand the talent landscape to enable the design and delivery of enterprise-wide solutions
  • Build and maintain strong relationships with HR to define the overall talent needs for different parts of the business and align development with a broader people strategy

  • Facilitate the identification, development and management of high potential leadership talent
  • Design selected leadership development courses and solutions to be utilized globally
  • Bring innovative ideas for when and how we develop leaders across the entire talent lifecycle, i.e., emerging to senior leaders. This means a holistic approach to what the leadership journey should look like and speak to all the tools/interventions used for development (coaching, assessments, mentorships, etc.) 
  • Be pragmatic with approach and delivery of leadership and talent management solutions 
  • Highly adaptive; an individual who thrives in a constantly changing, dynamic environment
  • Communicate persuasively, credibly, and authentically (both verbal and written)
  • Design and deliver classroom, blended and remote training offerings for all sizes and levels of leadership audiences
  • Be as comfortable consulting and partnering with HR and the business, as you are designing and delivering development solutions

You’ll need to have:

  • Minimum of 10 years’ experience; proven track record of design and delivery of development programs in a commercial, global environment, with a strong emphasis on leadership development and integration of diversity and inclusion 
  • Experience serving in a coaching capacity with senior leaders across a wide range of businesses

  • Performance driven mindset with a high degree of personal accountability for results
  • Strong attention to detail with excellent organizational skills
  • An ability to act professionally regarding sensitive subjects, and an ability to work in a fast paced and constantly changing environment
  • Comfortable acting as a consultant to the business and HR - having done so as external consultant or internally
