Regional Trainer in Durham

Good but fast paced employer
Nice team north. Loads of support. Area managers fab. A lot of travelling to meetings sometimes weekly but thats the job. However, that was before pandemic. Things may have changed since then regarding travelling.

Should be a market leader in all areas
I worked at the company for 3.5 years and saw a lot of changes to the structure of the company, my floor and the way business was run. The culture within lifetime was top notch when I 1st started but this quickly changed over a 5-6 month period due to bad staff recruitment and changes to management. Processes were changed every 48 hrs for more than 4-5 months at one point making working to any type of instructions nigh on impossible. Targets were also changed on a regular basis, I had a period of 12 months where I received no bonus despite being the top performer. There was also constant micro management whilst working remotely despite targets being hit, daily and monthly for months on end which became annoying.Management had a habit of buddying up with certain characters and making them part of the management setup even though they were under qualified and had no previous experience. Management also had a tendency to pull you in for 'disciplinary' action based on heresy without any evidence just the hunch their friends had, this was a regular thing at Lifetime. There were 2 culls to employees whilst I was there and this seemed to be a historical thing that they did when they had new employees within weeks which was a reoccurring pattern.There is no real progression at the company unless you are picked to do the role. I was more than qualified to work in other areas of the business as were some of my colleagues but we found out it wasn't worth it as we knew who had the job already regardless of how many people applied and the constant message from management of ' it's a even application processes for all'... this was never the case at all.In summary given the service I gave, money I made the company I was eager to leave in the end because of the constant scrutiny I received despite only being ill once in 4 years and being top performer for well over a year. I would not recommend anyone to move here unless you were young and looking to progress from apprenticeship level.

No work life balance
No work life balance at all. Extremely high caseloads mean you need to work way above contracted hours just to stay afloat. Company has gone downhill, now more concerned with money than the quality of training.

Heavily target driven!! other than that, great.
I'll try to make this is accurate as I can.I worked for Lifetime Training for a few months. Honestly recruitment, even if not hard sales, is definitely not for me. Personally, the company is alright, the pay is good though.The role is incredibly target driven and I understand it is the nature of the job and the sector but there is no denying how target driven it is, You'll constantly be asked on your progress and where you are with your candidates etc..They do try to make sure the staff are supported at work and that everything is facilitated and they did me good support, but honestly it's not for me and if you enjoy customer service and helping people but not necessarily jumping the hurdles and being followed up on all the time, this might not be for you.There are very nice and supportive colleagues in the office (some of which) easily approachable, some tend to keep to themselves, as is the norm I guess.Management are very motivated and do offer you support. Know that everything is accounted for and taken into consideration, thus they will continuously bombard you with reminders on booking your interviews and hitting targets etc..The role has a very intricate process which is very long winded but be prepared to stay on track as the amount of tasks involved can be overwhelming.Overall, 3 out of 5 stars for me, but as I say, if you are into recruitment and that sort of thing, you'll probably love it.
