The learning industry’s top specialist recruitment company, Blue Eskimo, has launched its eighth annual work and salary survey.

Blue Eskimo’s survey is the most comprehensive study of its kind – and is widely regarded as the benchmark for the learning industry’s salary and work information. The study is now in its eighth year. Participants can win an Apple Watch Sport.

Nick Bate, director at Blue Eskimo, says that the survey provides the most comprehensive set of data on work and pay within the UK’s learning sector. “There’s simply no survey like it – it’s comprehensive and up-to-date. Plus, this level of information isn’t available anywhere else.”

Every previous copy of the survey is available online at the Blue Eskimo website. “Although we include comparative data for the last two years in each survey, we always leave the older surveys online for reference,” says Bate.

This year, as an incentive for people to take part, the company is offering an Apple Watch Sport, worth up to £339. The only qualification for taking part in the survey is that the person must work in a training, e-learning or learning & development organisation or learning department.

In addition to providing the results online, a copy will be made available to members of the Learning & Performance Institute – and will be distributed at February’s Learning Technologies conference and exhibition, which runs from 3–4 February 2016 at Olympia, in London.

According to Bate, the survey underlines Blue Eskimo’s status as a genuine specialist within the learning sector. “Blue Eskimo is the leading recruitment business that’s 100% dedicated to the learning industry; it’s all that we do – and it’s all that we have done for the last 12 years.”

The survey is open now and can be taken online – it runs from now until mid-December and takes less than five minutes to complete. The results of the survey will be available early in 2016 – and the winner of the Apple Watch Sport should receive the watch in time for Christmas.
