ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/TEAM 

The Professional Development Centre (also known as PDC) is a business unit with the British Council (Singapore) operating as a corporate training consultancy focusing on enhancing our clients’ business communication skills. Each year we work with several thousand employees from more than one hundred organisations from local and international companies and the public sector.

We offer nearly 40 classroom-based workshops at our training centre in Toa Payoh or at client premises. The workshops are of between one and three days in length and are clustered into three domains:

• Written communication

• Interpersonal communication (including presentation skills, storytelling and negotiating) and

• Leadership communication (including coaching & mentoring and emotional intelligence)

 

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING AND WHY

As a training consultant, you will consistently deliver high quality training through our public and in-company workshops held in our Toa Payoh centre and at company premises. 

Trainers are also expected to complete project work, customise materials and to help with creating new training materials. This can mean adapting current materials for our clients or writing new courses based on current business needs.

WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT IT

This is an excellent career development opportunity for a trainer to broaden his or her training and professional skills.

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
If you have a first degree together with a recognised training or teaching qualification at certificate level together with four years of relevant work experience (post-qualification) with a proven track record of delivering communication skills training to clients from public and/or private sectors, work with us and you will have access to equally high-quality training and learning opportunities to develop your skills and improve your prospects.
