Our Story.

Digital learning buyers: We were there, we felt your pain…

We’ve been in digital learning for a long time. We’ve been clients, we’ve been suppliers, we’ve been freelancers. So we know what it’s like. We know the challenges in connecting the right people with the right project, and keeping the balance between in-house skills and outsourcing.

Spending on RFPs and Procurement instead of great learning…

As clients, we found it challenging to find the best partners to quickly act on our needs and deliver, and look beyond a short list of the same companies on the procurement list. Finding new suppliers means scouring the market, running RFPs, shortlisting, Statement of Works… that all takes time and cost that we’d rather invest in doing great work.

The digital learning talent is out there – but how do you find it?

As suppliers, we know it can be hard to get on the radar of buyers, especially if you’re a smaller agency or freelancer. You can do great work for clients, but how do they find you and tap into your talent? You can spend on sales and marketing, but there’s no guarantee you’ll get through procurement gates.

There’s got to be a better way…

We thought there has to be a better way. Inspired by how online marketplaces have disrupted other sectors, David started Jam Pan in 2014 to create a better way to connect digital learning talent with opportunities, and to help agencies flex and scale with talent on demand.

What happened next…

Since then we’ve grown to support leading brands including Dixons Carphone, Quilter, Sodexo, Google, Deloitte and Shop Direct with their digital learning needs, ranging from just a few days of developer support to large scale digital global learning projects with global talent on demand. They’re saving time, cost and delivering great results to their learners and their business. We’re proud to be helping digital learning freelancers and agencies connect with great clients, win work and grow their businesses.

We’re passionate about driving innovation in digital learning, tapping into the talent economy, and helping clients and suppliers do great work together. And we’re just getting started…
