Published date Posted on Indeed on Jan 12, 2022 (6 d ago)

The Online Learning Consultant will drive the initiatives to expand the Internews learning management system (LMS) and support the development of online courses and meetings.

All remote candidates will be considered. However, you must have work authorization in your location that does not require sponsorship from Internews. Additionally, there are locations in which Internews is not able to support fully remote work.
Wherever possible, we work to try to find solutions for international hiring that work for both the company and the candidate. This means that some of the particulars around the offer for a role will be dependent on several factors, and that the benefits and salary structure that apply to a position will ultimately be based upon the candidate's location and where the role is hired.
This position has an anticipated closing date of January 27, 2022.
