Essential Job Functions
The Training Manager is responsible for overseeing a team of three direct reports, working together to help attorneys and staff learn and leverage Kirkland’s technology in the manner that best allows each individual to excel in their respective role and ultimately meet the needs of our clients. The person in this role must project a professional, engaging demeanor and provide a positive, high-energy learning environment. The position requires a reliable self-starter and problem solver who looks for opportunities to educate and leads by example. Training delivery includes virtual, in person classroom, webinars, individual coaching, support, and document troubleshooting. The Training Manager follows firmwide standard lesson plans when training, but also contributes to the development of training curriculums to help ensure an optimal user experience and desired outcomes. Work efforts may include, but are not limited to, drafting training documents and end user communications, as well as providing end-user support on advanced topics that require more significant application and business process knowledge. Advanced use of Microsoft Office products, including proper use of Microsoft Word to construct legal documents, and the use of Document Management systems is essential, as is the ability to learn new applications quickly, proficiently and independently. This position is based out of the New York office and oversees the trainers in that location but will work with trainers around the firm to provide training for our users. Flexibility to work overtime and some weekends is needed, along with occasional travel to the Boston office.
