The position of Corporate Trainer is crucial to any company and must have an expert knowledge of all systems and job tasks on which they’re training others, which is why many companies promote Trainers from within. When searching outside of your organization for a Trainer candidate, you’ll want to be as specific as possible in your job description about which software programs and employee education this person will be responsible for. Unlike your job posting, which is part of your company’s talent brand marketing, this job description is meant for your career site and for links in the job posting to give your prospective Trainer more detailed information. Writing a Corporate Trainer job description is important even if you are using it to screen internal candidates. We’ve put together a basic set of guidelines on how to write an effective job description posting and template.

If HR is also responsible for learning, training, and development, the role of Corporate Trainer falls under the umbrella of HR. Trainers can be employee orientation leaders or those that facilitate training and development programs as well as provide specialized training and learning for certain employee groups and departments. The role and responsibilities of the Trainer are dependants on the size and scope of the organization. If an organization has a separate training and L&D department, this individual may be a peer to an HR manager and report directly to an HR Director or a Training Director or other learning and development leadership role. This role may be an exempt level or non-exempt level role. The average pay for a Trainer is $51,000 per year. Those in the 90th percentile make $72,000 per year, and those in the 10th percentile have an income of $36,000.  


The following is an example of a job description that you can use for your job postings. You only need to change the relevant information and exchange it for your company’s information.
