Learning and Development

Group of people

We want Platform to be known for how we develop our people and we believe that learning and development should be a key part of the colleague experience here.  When it comes to developing our people, there’s one aim that drives us – to equip and uplift.  From skills development, behaviour development and by opening up options for you to explore this organisation and gain experience, we are all about setting people up for success.  Whether it’s in the way we welcome you into the business and support you throughout your career with us, in how we develop teams and people or how we design our policies and processes – you will know that our goal is to enable you to bring your best

At Platform, we are a people business and we want to be known for investing in futures – whether this is learning and qualifications that open up choice and mobility, investing in our rising stars as a key part of how we manage talent and growing our own or whether it’s opening up learning as creating social value so that we can pay it forward.  We want you to play a key part in designing what the future looks like for you, your teams and our customers – we will make sure that you are prepared for now and for the future. 

Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic priority here and we want to make sure that the learning we provide continues to build an inclusive place to work.  This is not about one-off training, it’s so much more than that.  We commit to developing people by understanding your strengths because we want you to understand how by being yourself, you can thrive with us.
