If you like acronyms, open space offices and a plumish shade of red then N4L could be the company for you. We’re all about supporting schools’ digital learning experiences… and having a little fun in the process. So keep an eye out – there may be a role for you just around the corner!


We’re a tech company, but we like people too. We even talk to each other, it’s actually quite an effective approach (#friendlystaffers)


Get it done

Have the freedom to unleash your genius and support the education sector around the country. If you’ve got the skills, we’ve got the ambition (#sectorgoals)


Help us, help schools and help yourself in the process by getting the professional development and support needed to get the job done (#careerbuilder)


It’s not all tech and gadgets – throw down a darts challenge, run the mean streets of Parnell, find your zen at yoga, or get your fill of coffee and cake – the choice it yours (#somuchbalance)
