E-learning jobs facilitated by Learning Light

August 04, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
Having built up an impressive reputation over many years as the place on the internet to look for, and advertise, jobs within the e-learning development industry in the UK, the e-Learning Job Centre is going from strength to strength now that it has come under the auspices of Learning Light (LL), a non-profit organisation, seeking to establish itself as a Centre of Excellence in the use of learning technologies in the workplace.

“This is not a recruitment agency but, rather, is a free service for jobseekers to advertise their skills and experience - while employers and recruitment agencies pay just £15 per vacancy to advertise their e-learning opportunities,” said Mark Pittaway, LL’s CEO.

“We accept postings from the UK and Europe. We also offer a notification service for those who want to be alerted to new jobs and/or jobseekers on the site,” he added.

Current job vacancies and job seekers included on the e-Learning Job Centre cover instructional designers, project supporters, technical consultants, web programmers and sales personnel including sales managers.

The e-Learning Job Centre’s founder, Jane Knight, who is now LL’s head of research, commented: “Some of the comments we’ve received from those who have used our posting service include, ‘We took an advert for an instructional design specialist and had a tremendous response: 23 applications in four days’; ‘Within 24 hours of posting my availability on the e-Learning Job Centre, I had a new contract,’ and ‘Only 30 minutes after the job had been posted we had already received three applications - and good ones at that - and a lot more poured in soon afterwards.’"

The growing use made of this service – bringing together job seekers and job providers in the e-learning industry – is a sure sign that the industry is growing, said Pittaway He added: “Learning Light is delighted to be playing a key role in facilitating this industry’s growth in this way.”
