The survey, now in its fifth 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 will be entered into a prize draw – giving them the opportunity to win an Apple iPad with Retina Display, worth £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.

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 grown to become the most important of its kind. “This is the survey’s fifth year,” says Jones, “so we’ve built up a very comprehensive picture of the pay scales and attitudes to work of learning professionals.”

Jones’ co-director, Nick Bate, agrees: “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.”

Colin Steed, chief executive at the Learning & Performance Institute, believes that the survey is vital to the industry. He commented, “All organisations and individuals benefit from having access to this data. It helps people with their careers and organisations with their skills and rewards frameworks. There’s nothing like it in the industry.”

The annual salary and work survey is open now and takes less than five minutes, and will remain open until 3 December.

The results of the survey will be published early in 2013 – and the lucky winner of the prize draw will receive the free iPad in time for Christmas this year.
