University Alliance Welcomes New Network Lead, Dr Isabel Spence

University Alliance is pleased to welcome Dr Isabel Spence who will take up the new role of Network Lead. She will be managing and reinvigorating the Alliance networks, which bring together senior staff from across the membership to share ideas and tackle common issues together.

Isabel has worked in the education sector for over ten years, within parliament, the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Microbiology Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry. She specialises in STEM education and skills and most recently has worked as a consultant for organisations working in this field.

CEO Vanessa Wilson said:

“We are thrilled that Isabel is joining the team. Raising the profile and ensuring the success of professional and technical universities through collaboration is at the heart of University Alliance’s mission. Isabel’s broad experience across academia and government will be invaluable in ensuring that our networks deliver meaningful opportunities to work together and share ideas.”

Isabel said:

“I am excited to have joined University Alliance as Network Lead. When a network is successful, it can make a huge difference to all involved, by strengthening connections and identifying and finding solutions to common issues. I am looking forward to meeting staff across the UA membership and working with them to develop and deliver effective networks.”
