Why it’s great to join our team

We work hard to deliver amazing learning experiences that make a difference, but our approach to work provides for a lot of flexibility:

  • Our team works remotely, so you can be located anywhere and work from home.
  • Mutilingual candidates are welcome because we work in English but also produce courses in other languages (primarily French, but also Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and Chinese).

All LSi interns receive top-notch training and coaching, access to amazing learning opportunities for professional development, and can benefit from our mentoring programme for learning leaders.

How to apply

  • Your motivation letter should demonstrate your impeccable writing skills. (Applications without a motivation letter may be discarded.)
  • Please include links (in your CV or your motivation letter) to at least two projects that demonstrate your capabilities. Be specific about your role and responsibilities in each project.
  • Shortlisted candidates may be invited to take a written test.
