Customer Service Technical Support Analyst
Learning is one of the world’s most powerful forces for change. As the world’s largest learning company, Pearson has been contributing to a profound impact on our world since its formation in 1844. Pearson employs more than 20,000, operates in 70 countries, and delivers products and services in nearly 200 countries. Each one is furthering a common purpose: to help people achieve their highest potential through learning. Towards this goal, Pearson provides a diverse global community with high quality digital content, learning experiences, assessments, and qualifications to build skills and proactively impact our evolving world. Pearson works with globally recognized educational institutions, employers, and governments, deploying its expertise across a broad range of subject matter and age groups.
Tens of millions of people rely on Pearson for learning throughout their lives. Pearson’s knowledge and experience help create the best content delivered in the most appropriate way for the best learner outcomes – whether digitally to help children read or online courses to upskill career-driven professionals. With advances in technology and changes in consumer habits, Pearson helps people reach their goals regardless of their location and preferred learning modality. From carefully designed online resources and rich content, to full course and curriculum support – Pearson’s products address the entirety of a person’s learning starting with formal education to the workplace and beyond.
While formal education comprises 75 percent of the learning market, projections indicate over one billion more learners will progress through formal education by 2030 owing to a growing global middle class, longer careers and increasing consumer demand for lifelong and non-academic learning, particularly for reskilling and upskilling. To meet the needs of today’s learners, Pearson is split into five business divisions each with its own focus and expertise, all supported by the Direct-to-Consumer group.
