We are currently looking to hire an Intern who will report to the SVP of Professional Development and Coaching.

  1. Partner with SVP of Professional Development and Coaching to create an internal Leadership Development Program.

 

  • Research and present various leadership competencies to Spellman’s corporate leadership and reach an agreement on what is important to Spellman.

  • Work with SVP and steering committee to review the various modules that could be incorporated into our training and fit them to the corresponding competencies. 
  • Help develop and structure training modules.
  • If interested, facilitate training for some of the learning modules.
