Following our recent acquisition of Nottingham based e-learning supplier, Mind Click, a firm whose clients include Boots, Procter & Gamble and Sky, we've initially created eight job opportunities, with plans for further expansion later this year.
In 2016, Learning Pool achieved the highest possible accreditation of three stars in the 2016 ‘Sunday Times’ list of Top 100 companies to work for. Founded in Derry in 2006, the company delivers a one-stop-shop solution for organisations seeking online learning services to train their employees. Our 400 clients include mid-to-large corporates operating across a range of sectors, with customers such as Jury’s Inn, the Houses of Parliament, Boots UK and DFS.
Paul McElvaney, CEO at Learning Pool comments:“2016 was a whirlwind year for us. We secured significant investment from Carlyle Cardinal Ireland, welcomed the talented Mind Click team into the Learning Pool family and now we’re looking for even more enthusiastic people to join our team in Northern Ireland and throughout the UK. These appointments will allow us to build out our technology at a quicker pace for our customer’s benefit. I’m excited about the next phase of Learning Pool’s growth that will see us deliver more product innovation and significant expansion of our customer base and our team.”
An Investors In People Gold accredited and Deloitte Best Managed Company, Learning Pool takes a proactive approach to its team development and is dedicated to creating a unique and fun working culture. Perks include lunchtime personal training sessions, fresh fruit delivery to the office and a number of community and charity activities that bind the team together.
Maeve McLaughlin, Learning Consultant at Learning Pool said: “I’ve worked at Learning Pool for nine years and have found a career that I love. It’s so rewarding to work closely with our customers and to truly make a difference in their organisations. If I could describe Learning Pool in one word, it would be 'fun'. The team is just like one big family and it’s a pleasure working in a company with so many exciting opportunities.”
Learning Pool has created 30 new jobs in Derry, Belfast and across the UK over past three years and will employ 130 people when these current roles are filled . Passionate about supporting local communities and young adults, in the last year Learning Pool has developed two graduate schemes, developed nine ‘rising stars’ as part of the Investing in Young People scheme and offered 5 hands-on IT placements with permanent job opportunities.
