These newly created roles demonstrate IDP’s increased investment in technology to unlock opportunities for its customers, and transform the international education sector.

The new roles follow on from the appointment of Neeraja Krishnan in 2021 in her role as Director of IDP’s Digital Campus in India which is supported by 530 digital and technology experts.

Jeremy has over a decade’s experience at IDP, with his previous roles including Information Services Manager and most recently, Chief Technology Officer.

In his new role, Jeremy will lead the team driving innovation in IDP’s International English Language Testing System (IELTS) business and lead the company’s technology engagement with IELTS partners.

Andrew Barkla, IDP’s Chief Executive Officer, said both Matt and Jeremy will play a critical role in IDP’s ambitious digital transformation strategy, which continues to build momentum.

“We have invested early in digital technology, and our customers, clients and people are already reaping the benefits. Our enhanced digital capabilities now include a student placement platform, virtual counselling, IDP Live and computer-delivered IELTS.

“I am very excited to see IDP continue to innovate and enhance our unmatched customer experience. These appointments strengthen our integrated approach to leading technology, and trusted human support, and will enable us to accelerate our innovation, and further grow our global platform and connected community,” Mr Barkla said.
