Way back in 2012 Woodrow Mercer were a relatively new Recruitment Agency who had a primary focus in the Public Sector and Technology markets. During that year we had a client approach us, asking if we could assist in the recruitment of an Instructional Designer. “Sure” we said, not having a single clue what an Instructional Designer was.
It was that initial request that led us to discover the digital learning industry, and it didn’t take us long to realise that this wasn’t going to be a one off, but instead we had been fortunate enough to stumble across an entire market that we could focus our efforts on!
And so, Woodrow Mercer Learning was born. At first headed up by Scott Slade, who took to the industry like a duck to water, quickly establishing himself as a “go to” recruiter across the industry for clients’ looking to increase their permanent head count. Soon the team grew to support the demand for contract and freelance requirements, and so the team expanded, and the name Woodrow Mercer became synonymous with learning recruitment.
Fast forward 10 years’ and you won’t find Woodrow Mercer Learning on the internet: Today we are Possibl. After continuous growth and the development of new markets it feels like the team and the expertise that we offer has outgrown our original moniker. It was time to re-brand and we thought it was time to re-establish on the services and ethos that we bring to the market.
From our beginnings as a Digital Learning recruitment agency, we now boast the capabilities to support clients across much wider markets including, L&D, OD, Talent, HR, UX / UI, Graphic Design and Animation. We have a team of dedicated consultants who focus specifically on each market space supporting both permanent and contract hire.
