Job Description

You’re a bit of a nerd about adult learning strategies, and you’ve immersed yourself in the trends of your profession. Microlearning, personalized learning pathways, virtual and remote workforce & professional development – this is your language. Assessment, retooling, reskilling – these are the terms that keep you up at night but also get you excited to start the day. You’re not afraid of IT or technical training. You are passionate about creating more value-centered, human-focused learning experiences. You enjoy the rush of having coordinated a successful training event or conference. You’ve been chomping at the opportunity to design a complete needs-based learning program with some oomph.

And maybe, just maybe, you’re tired of the corporate environment, and that battle for respect, constantly proving the value YOU bring to “the company.”

Sound like you? Keep reading…

We know your value. You don’t need to prove to us the ROI of training nor justify why employees need more, better and ongoing talent development. It’s the reason we created this position. We might not pay as much as a corporation, but we guarantee your work will be respected, meaningful and impactful.

The primary focus of the job is on designing and preparing effective, well-coordinated training events and educational resources for library staff throughout Colorado’s rural and small libraries, in close partnership with other CLiC staff members. The Talent Development Consultant helps drive and innovate approaches to training to meet a range of needs, prepares multimedia training materials and collaborates with content specialists (other CLiC staff) in delivering those materials in print, online and occasionally in a library.

This is a remote position, making occasional visits to the CLiC office. You brew your own coffee (or tea).

Benefits & Additional Compensation Info

CLiC strives to put its employees first.  This isn’t just something we say.  You’ll see evidence of this philosophy at every turn.

How? Sure, CLiC offers competitive pay and comprehensive benefits. But there’s so much more to gain when working at CLiC. We value professional development and stimulating work for every position.  We value wellness and life-work balance.  And we value fun, which is why on any given day you'll overhear a conversation about an episode from Bob's Burgers, learn secrets about smoking a brisket from a coworker, see an staff member's shared video of a Great Dane in a staring standoff with a deer, or any number of other entertaining topics.

Consider working at CLiC, where our culture is built around this concept: our people are our greatest asset, and investment in people is key to our success.

Additional Info & Requirements


  • Proven ability to assess training needs and objectives. Documented ability to design, develop, implement, and evaluate training programs.
  • Proven experience delivering training for adults in a virtual environment.
  • Proven track record for coordinating both in-person and virtual event logistics, including planning, marketing, attendee registration, and related tasks.
  • Proven experience producing teaching aids such as training handbooks, demonstration models, multimedia visual aids, online tutorials, or related.
  • Residence in Colorado.
  • Bachelor’s degree, plus three more years of related experience.
  • Demonstrable experience communicating and using technology tools. If you dislike listening, talking, writing, interacting with people or using technologies related to communication, this job isn’t a good fit.

Strongly preferred:

  • Degree in business management, instructional design/development for adult learners, certification in talent development and related specializations, or equivalent relevant work experience.
  • Curiosity about the world. Interest in one or more topics not DIRECTLY “training” related (though in some regards, nearly every cocktail party conversation can be steered back to a discussion about how people learn and how YouTube is a black hole of wonderful and terrible video tutorials).
  • Attention to detail. Read our application procedure. ALSO read the official job description! If you find your professional training background is captured in the words above and in the official description, we’d love to receive your application.

The Community

If you’re a training & talent development professional chomping for an opportunity to have your work impact many wonderful rural & small libraries across Colorado, then consider working at CLiC. Your playground would be our entire state because libraries are everywhere.

Please submit a non-form cover letter and a professional resume. If your letter begins with “Dear Hiring Manager,” then you’re already off to a bad start.

Not all of the places you’ve worked (hello, that’s in your resume…), and not the trite “I’m a hard-working, dependable, enthusiastic, and experienced person who will make a positive contribution to your organization.” If you’re indeed such a person, believe us, we’ll ferret that out.
