Blue Eskimo’s Nick Jones discusses the changing jobs market with Learning News.


Recruitment is like a weather vane for investment in the economy and often one of the first to feel things change. 

At Learning Technologies, Learning News caught up with Nick Jones, Co-founder and Director of the recruiter Blue Eskimo, which recruits learning and development roles for commercial learning vendors and corporate L&D teams.

Nick Jones explains how, post pandemic, vacancies increased by around forty to fifty percent as L&D responded to increased demand for new programmes, fuelled by cultural and workplace change, faster digital transformation and hybrid working. In Q1 2023 vacancies started to return to their normal level, currently down 30% from the inflated high in 2022.
