Londonderry based firm Learning Pool, a leading provider of online learning for global organisations, is to create 20 new jobs as part of plans to double office space at its headquarters in the historic City Factory.

Learning Pool was founded in 2006 by its CEO, Paul McElvaney and today provides online learning services to more than 550 organisations globally, working with companies such as New Look, Tesco, Jurys Inn and Specsavers.

Most recently Learning Pool announced that it had been selected by the Football Association to support the delivery of a world-leading football education programme by 2020.

“Our success to date has been built on revolutionising learning and development across organisations, giving employees the freedom to undertake training and development courses online, at times convenient to them,” said Mr McElvaney.

We’re continuing to innovate and are working on some exciting next generation products.

“These new roles will help us to build on our commitment to deliver innovative solutions and an excellent quality service to the two million people we expect to train in 2019”.

Director of People and Performance, Louise McElvaney, said successful candidates will be able to work in Londonderry or in any of Learning Pool’s offices in Belfast, Hamilton in Scotland and Nottingham.

“We’re recruiting across all departments, from graphic design to software development and successful candidates can expect an impressive remuneration reflective of the roles”, she said.

“This drive represents a fantastic opportunity to join Learning Pool’s award-winning team and we’re excited about our plans to integrate our new people and support them on their journey. Whether it’s preparing our customers for new and emerging technologies, gamification in e-learning, or the very latest in next generation learning systems, Learning Pool is leading the way and our team is the driving force, making it all possible.”
