The UK's leader in learning and development recruitment, Blue Eskimo, has just launched its annual salary and work survey.

The survey, now in its fourth year, provides the learning industry's only dedicated benchmark for information related to salary and work trends. The survey is run by Blue Eskimo, the specialist in learning and development jobs, e-learning jobs and training jobs.

As an additional incentive, everyone who takes part in the survey is entered into a prize draw - giving them the opportunity to win an Apple iPad 2, worth around £399. To qualify, those who enter the survey must work in the learning/e-learning sector or in a learning/e-learning role within any other kind of organisation.

As always, the results of the survey will be made available - free of charge - on Blue Eskimo's website. The results will also be sent to companies and professionals within the learning industry.

Nick Jones, director at Blue Eskimo, says that the survey has become the touchstone for salary information in the learning industry. "Now in our fourth year, we're building up a very clear picture of job and salary information for learning professionals. Our research covers everything from benefit packages to work/life balance, giving the industry a valuable insight into almost every aspect of the training jobs market."

Alan Bellinger, executive consultant to the Learning & Performance Institute, believes that the survey plays an important role in creating a clear picture of trends within the industry. He commented, "There has never been a time when, as learning professionals, we were able to add so much value to our organisations and our clients; to be able to compare our experience with that of our colleagues gives us such an excellent insight".

The survey is open now, and will remain open until 2 December.

Take the survey now, it takes less than five minutes.

The results of the survey will be published early in 2012 - and the lucky winner of the prize draw will receive the free iPad in time for Christmas this year.
