Development at Vax

On-boarding

At Vax, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to learn and develop in your role.  When you join us, you will attend our launch induction programme, where you will learn about Vax, our customers, all of our departments and what they do. You will also meet with all of our department managers so that you get to know them before you start your role.

Ongoing Development

Once your induction training is completed, we will continue to develop your talents through the variety of learning opportunities we offer. We have structured development programmes in several departments including our call centre, and more tailored development opportunities on offer elsewhere. When we’ve hired you, we’ll want to retain you; therefore we know we need to provide further opportunities for you to learn new skills.

We also believe strongly in education and continuous professional development, so we actively support many of our employees through qualifications such as ACCA, CIMA, CIPD, CIM, CILT and MBAs We even give you extra study days as we know that you’ll need additional time to learn (see our Reward section)

Managers

We are committed to training all managers in essential leadership skills to equip them to lead their team within Vax, and to engage and inspire their people. All managers attend our ‘Lead2Succeed’ training programme which covers all the essentials of first line management and leadership over the course of 4 key modules. As people progress into more senior leadership roles, they attend our 'Lead2Exceed' programme which develops their strategic awareness and provides in-depth 360 feedback.

Career Development Opportunities

All of our people follow a monthly coaching and performance structure called 'Achieve' which offers them regular feedback on performance and an opportunity to discuss support, development needs.

Everyone progresses at a different rate based on their drive and capability, so we don’t have a specific timescale for how quickly you will progress your career at Vax. If you are someone who is driven to succeed and demonstrates high potential, Vax will provide the support to help you progress. Each department at Vax has a clearly written career path to help individuals understand the skills and experience required for all of our positions.
