Global Education Practice Group

For the past seven years The Insight Group has been the proud Australian member firm of IRC Global Executive Search Partners. A key part of IRC’s success has been the development of eleven Global Practice Groups. One of these groups is focused exclusively on the education sector.


Global Education Practice Group

The international education sector is evolving rapidly as universities, colleges and other providers seek to create environments and platforms where students can learn what they need to know when they need to know it and thrive in a knowledge rich world. Changes in government funding models in many countries, the impact of new digital delivery modes and the growing demand for higher education especially in Asia and the Middle East are resulting in challenges and opportunities for institutions of all sizes. With education and research talent being highly mobile, the IRC global alliance brings a unique perspective and understanding to this important and exciting sector.


Our Team

The Education Practice Group comprise highly experienced consultants dedicated to meeting client needs on a local, regional and global basis. The team meets regularly and brings together extensive education and search industry experience.

IRC’s Education Practice Group is led globally by The Insight Group’s Melbourne Director, Dr Rohan Carr with regional leaders covering the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific.

We have a strong track record of appointments at the senior academic and professional level, particularly in areas of low labour supply, narrow specialisations and where international search is required.

Our collaborative and client centred approach brings insight, accuracy and urgency to each and every search assignment.
