Full-Time Senior Learning Solutions Designer

Metrix Group – Posted by Metrix Group Anywhere

Job Description


Metrix provides strategy and design solutions that make change happen. We’re a Toronto-based agency that provides  services in relation to Learning & Development, Healthcare Marketing, and Career Development. We guide people and  organizations towards a better future by providing innovative and effective learning and marketing solutions.

From custom workplace learning solutions to strategic healthcare marketing consultation with accompanying impactful  tools, we assist our clients in reaching their goals. Everything we create is ultra-custom and built in a strong partnership  with our clients, so that they can each meet their specific and unique business objectives. We consult across a range of  industries, including pharmaceutical, financial services, retail, government, and non-profit.

We are proudly a People First company, and an equal opportunity employer. We know that a diverse team makes us  stronger. This includes diversity of individual identities, as well as of thought, opinion, and skill sets. We take action to create an inclusive and equitable workplace and community. Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown  that women and people of colour are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. If you’re  excited about this role, but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we  encourage you to apply anyways. You may just be the right candidate for this role or another role.

We seek out input, support, and feedback from diverse stakeholders to get the best results. We also aim to work with  organizations that share our strong commitments to driving equity and equality.

We encourage people from all backgrounds and identities to apply, and to please let us know if you need any type of  accommodation throughout the recruitment process.

We are committed to our team’s wellbeing and trust our people to get their job done from where they feel happiest and  most productive. We have several perks our staff can enjoy as well, which include a 4.5-day work week, benefits from day  one, extra paid time-off allotments, career development opportunities, and more. Our physical workspaces are open;  however, we will operate as a 100% work-flex company. You’ll be able to work from our workspaces located all over the  country, from home, or a combination of both!

All interviews will take place over the phone/video.
