I am currently working with an organisation in Hertfordshire who are looking to bring on board a couple of Instructional Designers over the course of the next couple of months.


This is a learning consultancy who are incredibly established within the digital learning industry and have been operating at the highest level for several years. The way that the production team is structured is that it includes instructional designers, content developers and graphic designers, all of which play an integral part in creating and developing leading digital learning content. The purpose of the Instructional Designer is to conduct a full learning needs analysis with the client, defining objectives and the scope of each piece of learning, and then coming up with concept ideas following on from that. When in the kick-off meetings, you will also be supported by a project manager that will assist throughout the end to end process.

This is a very collaborative environment where you will have up to 5 projects going on at any one time so working together as well as having excellent individual project management skills are going to be the key to success. When talking with the developers and graphic designers, you need to ensure that they are adhering to the client’s expectations. Having been in the kick-off meeting to create and decide a process, analyse the learning needs and discuss potential concepts you must ensure that the agreed parts of the process are being met.

Creativity and innovation are also key skills that you need in this position, to leverage the technology that we have at our fingertips in the industry and maximise accessibility and engagement for the learners in the client organisations. For this, a real passion for learning is required with the drive to keep up to date with the industry trends, technologies and ideas that allow for creative content. You'll be creating gamification pieces, videos, extended reality's and mobile learning apps as a few examples of some the exciting work you and this team will undertake.
