We could sit here and tell you that SoftwareONE is a privately held, Swiss headquartered, 7 Billion Dollar company.
We could also tell you that SoftwareONE is present in 82 markets worldwide and now employs 3000+ people.
We could spend more time telling you about how SoftwareONE is a market leader Software Portfolio Management, Cloud & Technology Solutions
We could even tell you that we are growing at 35%+ year on year – however, by the time you’ve finished reading this document, we’d have to increase all the figures J
The problem with telling you these facts is that, although they’re true, and we are immensely proud of and humbled by what we’ve achieved, if you’re really interested in that type of information, then we’re probably not the company you’re looking to come and work for.
“Strip away everything. Strip away our brand, strip away our buildings, strip away our offices. What are we left with? Our people. This is what makes SoftwareONE successful.

Our culture is unique, and I believe that having the right people, and empowering them to succeed, is the absolute key to our success” – Patrick Winter, CEO.

A super passionate, entrepreneurial Learning & Development Leader with experience in building and scaling and Learning & Development structure. You have genuine accountability, and whilst you may have previously worked in a strong matrix structure, you can also demonstrate direct responsibility for results and bottom line impact.
Learning & Development for you means delivering a measurable impact on people – making them the best possible version of themselves they can be – and as a consequence, accelerating productivity in the business and the performance of the population at a functional level. You love being hands on, delivering coaching and training as well as working to design the overall programs.
You’re on an upward curve in your career but are thirsty to be challenged further. You have experience of building a ground up culture of learning that connects the employee lifecycle from onboarding to development. This is not just about enhancing their impact in their role, it’s about building the best possible people as a whole.
Vision 2022 is SoftwareONE’s 5 year strategy, transforming the company from a highly successful Software Lifecycle Management provider, to a global leader in Cloud Advisory Services & Technology Solutions.
This is the single largest corporate investment and is absolutely critical to realizing our vision. Help us and our brand to be recognized as a world class employer leader in employee development.
We believe the development of our people is one of the most critical investments we will make in their journey. For us, learning is not just about the traditional training of competencies associated with a role. It is more intrinsic in providing an opportunity for people to have an amazing experience becoming better versions of themselves.
ONELearning is our working concept which encompasses the employee lifecycle from Onboarding through continuous cultural and personal development. It is also based on the principle that we can harness the amazing knowledge of our employees to drive a “knowledge culture”.
We want you to be part of and contribute to the team that delivers world class development and learning opportunities to the company.
Your focus would be within your region but as part of the wider global organization, you would lead the design, build and delivery of a training, learning and development function & infrastructure that supports hiring, retaining and developing our complex employee population.
ONELearning is functionally accountable to the CHRO as part of the Group Leadership Team – but has a regional responsibility and alignment to the business P&L owners. It is a global organization in terms of philosophy, thinking & design but split into local & regional resources for delivery & localization priorities.
You’ve worked in big and small companies but you’ve always delivered your best work in an entrepreneurial, growth environment.
People see you as an inspirational leader, amazing listener and subject matter expert who is able to work together with onsite & remote sales & consulting populations to drive cultural and profitable growth. You remain pragmatic, hands on but without being a micro manager.
We’re not asking for you to be the finished article – however your knowledge of the learning function incorporates Needs Analysis, Content Creation and Learning / Training Delivery (through a blended approach).
You’ve successfully scaled programs that blend classroom, virtual and technology solutions that deliver true value.
You can demonstrate that eLearning platforms are more than just an empty cupboard and you’ve successfully operated on a regional scale (as a manager / leader) this is likely to have been within the IT Services / Technology Consulting / Professional Services industry.
Finally, You take great pride in delivering Customer Satisfaction (internally and externally) and Employee Satisfaction in your teams is paramount. Integrity is important to you but the big corporate machines don’t really interest you. You’re deeply Passionate about what you do but Humble enough to keep learning and recognise the importance of collaborating with your team and colleagues.
You’ve got great Discipline, but can still work at Speed and love creating tangible results.
