Logicearth expands in Belfast, seeks graphic and instructional designers

10 Dec 2014

Logicearth Learning Services, an e-learning company based in Belfast, is looking to hire 11 people that include designers, project managers and quality managers.

The company, established in 2009 by Peter Carlin and Paul McKay, currently employs eight people and it delivers classroom and online training, and learning consultancy to large corporate clients.

“Our strategy is to build a global learning organisation with a base in Northern Ireland,” said Carlin.

“We are now in a strong position to achieve significant growth in turnover over the next few years.

“Invest NI’s support for the 11 new jobs is enabling us to build further capacity and capability in the company so that we can target new clients, particularly in the key growth areas of learning technology and online content.

“With more learners wanting to access content on mobile devices, we have developed content that runs on any mobile device, giving us a significant competitive advantage.”

The new jobs, which include graphic and instructional designers, as well as project and quality managers, will have an average annual salary of around stg£24,000, with the company’s export focus seeing 85pc of its clients located outside of Northern Ireland.

“One of Invest NI’s aims is to build the digital media sector in Northern Ireland and so we are keen to support forward-looking companies such as Logicearth, which are creating high-value jobs,” said George McKinney, Invest NI’s director of technology and services.
