IFF expands their Higher Education team with hire of new Director

IFF Research have recruited former British Council Director Elizabeth Shepherd to their Higher Education research team. Ms. Shepherd will bring considerable public sector and international experience having spent over a decade within the British Council’s international education research team.

Ms. Shepherd will be working to grow IFF’s existing Higher Education research portfolio as they continue to make significant strides in this space. The agency is now the trusted destinations tracker for over 35 higher education institutions and works with a number of others on a range of strategic and tactical research challenges.

IFF’s Learning and Skills Director David Vivian commented:

“The HE sector has a huge impact on the country and on individual lives within it. There is a huge amount of uncertainty across the sector following recent legislative and policy changes, all magnified by the unpredictable impacts of Brexit. We want to work with institutions to help them find new and better ways to continue to fulfil their invaluable remit.

Elizabeth will be involved in the next stage of growth and development at IFF as we look to develop a dedicated Higher Education offering and consolidate our position as one of the leading players both in the UK and internationally.”
