Springpod announce their first Director of Higher Education

Emma Bridge joins Springpod as Director of Higher Education

Springpod has appointed Emma Bridge as Director of Higher Education. The role will see her lead on Springpod’s core university business, ensuring that young people have access to the highest quality course taster experiences through Subject Spotlights. This will, in turn, enable them to be better prepared and informed applicants.

Emma has extensive experience working in higher education and has a proven track record of student marketing and recruitment. She joins Springpod from the University of Leicester, where she held the role of interim Director of Communications and Events, and before that as Associate Director (Marketing Communications) at the University of Bradford where she successfully led the university’s strategy for clawing back the declining 18-year-old market.

Speaking about her appointment, Emma said:

“I’m extremely excited to take up the role of Director of Higher Education. Springpod has an ambitious strategy of ensuring that every young person makes the right decision; be that in work or higher education - and I am really looking forward to working with the teams to ensure that young people make the right choice for them.

“Choosing the right course and university is key to both the student and the university. It’s already very clear in the results I’m seeing from our Subject Spotlights that our offer makes a real difference for young people when making that very important decision.”

Founder and CEO at Springpod, Sam Hyams, said:

“I am delighted that Emma has joined Springpod to lead our university business. Her expertise and experience in the sector will help us to continually innovate on our Subject Spotlights and bring additional value for students and our university partners.”
