The first full day of pre-season training for new Carlton coach Brendon Bolton has coincided with another milestone for the Blues, with the Club announcing CareerOne – a leading player in the online job market – as its new joint major partner for the next two seasons.
In addition, official education partner Acquire Learning has extended its partnership with Carlton for a further two seasons.
The CareerOne logo will now appear on all official Blues apparel including the front of the Carlton away guernsey and the back of the home guernsey.
Acquire Learning’s brand will continue to adorn the Blues’ match-day and training shorts, with both brands to be featured on the Carlton media backdrop.
Since its July relaunch, CareerOne has led the market with its LUX product that showcases employer brands, visions, people and culture to help organisations find better quality talent. The LUX job-hunting experience also aims to significantly improve the way in which people find the right company and the right job.

Carlton CEO Steven Trigg has welcomed both partnerships.
“The partnership with CareerOne is a significant one for our football club as we continue to strengthen our position off the field,” Trigg said.
“We have a big focus on the education and development of not only our players, but our staff. These two partnerships open up many doors as a resource to all.
“We welcome the support of CareerOne and Acquire Learning and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”
John Wall, Group Managing Director of Acquire Learning, said: “Acquire Learning has had a strong relationship with the Carlton Football Club over the past two years".
“Today we’re thrilled not only to confirm our ongoing commitment to grow our partnership with Carlton, but we’re also excited to announce that the partnership has now evolved into a family affair, with CareerOne coming on board as a joint -major partner,” Wall said.
Acquire Learning recently secured a majority share in CareerOne as part of its commitment to help people get qualified, become job-ready and secure employment.
Carlton opened its 2016 pre-season training campaign at Ikon Park today, with the return of the Club’s 1-4 year players.
