About eLamb

eLamb started out in 2007 as a management training company, focusing on creating and delivering training for the Hospitality and Hair and Beauty industries.

As our relationships strengthened with our customers, the demand for eLearning and online training grew, so we mixed it up and grew into a “blended” training partner for our customers.

Success was instant, clients such as QHotels, Park Plaza, IHG, L’Oréal, Toni & Guy and Johnson & Johnson began working with us to deliver a blend of face to face and online training.

We have grown since those early days, authoring eLearning and delivering training via our Learning Management System (LMS) in new industries – product manufacturing, local authorities, retailers, and house builders, to name just a few.

Application Process

To apply, please email your CV, a covering letter and a portfolio or examples of your work to mark.wilson@elamb.co.uk.
