Want to be part of the next big thing? We need an experienced e-learning instructional designer to convert our highly successful, face-to-face training into e-learning.

We’re plain language specialists, and over the past 15 years we have trained almost 30,000 professionals in this critical skill. An outstanding 94% of participants rated our training as ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’. 

The challenge

Working with our subject matter experts, you will help convert our face-to-face training into e-learning modules that achieve the same (if not better) level of skills transfer.

You must be able to independently:

  • develop effective e-learning concepts
  • build functioning e-learning modules, using software such as Lectora Online
  • create simple audio-visual elements like background images, using software such as the Adobe Creative Suite.

You will be responsible for project managing our e-learning program of work. This includes:

  • delivering modules on time and to budget
  • ensuring all modules meet our agreed objectives
  • coordinating internal teams and (if needed) external consultants.

The remuneration

This is a 6-month contract position, which we expect to extend for the right person. The salary is up to $120,000 a year, depending on skills, experience, and your performance in our aptitude test. The yearly rate will be paid pro-rata for the 6-month contract.

About you

You must have the skills listed under ‘The challenge’.

You also need to have:

  • a relevant degree from an Australian university
  • fluent written and spoken English
  • at least 3 years experience in developing e-learning material
  • experience in using adult learning principles, active learning practices, experiential and blended learning, and competency-based evaluations
  • the right to work in Australia.

Great but not essential skills include:

  • being able to create more complex audio-visual elements, such as an animated video
  • familiarity with LMS platforms, especially Moodle.

We only review applications with a covering letter.
