ABOUT HIVE LEARNING

Hive Learning is a global leader in digital learning, helping workforces all over the world build cultures of learning, inclusion, collaboration and innovation. Our apps, content and activation teams help millions of people learn together every day.

We’re growing fast with main offices in London and New York. And we are proud to count some of the world’s most impactful and dynamic organisations (and individuals) as our customers, supporters and friends.

Our 50+ clients include the likes of Deloitte, Pepsico, Boots, multiple world-leading sports organisations such as The FA and not-for-profits - and our client base is growing fast.

We have a heritage of high performance - we’re backed by venture builder investors Blenheim Chalcot and founded by Rugby World-Cup-winning coach Sir Clive Woodward.

Our multi-discipline start-up team of 50 people spans in-house web and app development, professional services, content development, commercial, and marketing. 

And now we’re looking for someone who is just as inspired by learning as we are to help us develop our sports and volunteering communities.
