Job description


Corporate Centre Group
The Corporate Centre Group provides a wide range of corporate services to enable people at HM Treasury and many of the other organisations who form part of the Treasury Group (including the Government Internal Audit Agency, the Debt Management Office and the new National Infrastructure Bank) to operate effectively and efficiently. We are a diverse group, both in terms of our professions and in our ways of working.

The Corporate Centre Group is made up of: Commercial; Correspondence and Information Rights; Finance; Human Resources; Information Technology and Workspace Services; the Flexible Safer Working team, the Darlington programme team and Treasury Group Shared Services (based in Norwich).


Our Human Resources team, comprising around 40 people, is currently delivering a wide-ranging change programme. We are a diverse team of HR professionals and others with a background in Treasury policy work, which makes for a useful skills mix. We have a wide range of flexible working arrangements in place. We work closely with senior leaders to make sure that our work genuinely supports and makes valuable contributions to the organisation.
You’d be part of the Learning and Development team who work alongside Casework & Policy, Workforce Planning & Talent, Pay & Reward and Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging teams in HR to provide an HR service to the Department.

We have a sister team in Norwich which handle the transactional HR work for the Treasury and our Arms Length Bodies.


Our L&D team vision is ‘a Treasury where innovative L&D provision is integral to staff making a positive national impact’, and a huge part of this is delivering targeted early career support for B, C and D grades (AO – SEO). The Treasury runs its own Graduate Development Programme (GDP), bringing in 60-100 new graduates each year. Once recruited the graduates form cohorts and take part in a structured learning programme.

This role principally requires you to lead the design and delivery of the GDP. The programme is well established and is aligned to our GDP Framework, which mirrors the central Civil Service policy profession standards and Civil Service behaviours.

As there are multiple intakes over the 3-year scheme, you will have to be organised in managing several cohorts at any one time. The role also requires regular presentation and training facilitation both virtually and face to face, as well as managing our external training suppliers as needed.
As well as the GDP, there are other Early Careers opportunities to lead on. There may be scope to deliver other L&D projects within the role. The key accountabilities will include (but not limited to):

1. Facilitate virtual and face to face learning interventions such as our 2-week induction that runs twice a year, as well as other training sessions across the Treasury
2. Lead all aspects of the operational delivery of the GDP including managing suppliers of the programme and communicating with the graduates, their line managers, external and internal partners including senior officials.
3. Lead reforms to the GDP so that it is more impactful and sustainable. This will include cultivating a learning culture on the programme through championing use of development tools, engaging with line managers, and designing new components of the programme.
4. Drive improvements to our Early Career learning opportunities by evaluating and reviewing feedback, drawing on insights about L&D best practice and graduate/early career learning
5. Lead on contract and financial management for your programmes. This will involve identifying risks, liaising with finance colleagues, preparing monthly finance forecasting and managing procurement processes.
6. Undertake varied project work to support the strategic work of the L&D team. This may include leading initiatives, identifying ideas and creating practical solutions to support our strategy
7. Coaching and developing junior team members to ensure that they are supported in their role and continue to develop their own careers. The Early Careers L&D team includes an L&D Adviser (Range C/EO) and an L&D Assistant (Range B/AO).
