The IHE is delighted to share the news of a revitalised version of our website – Following a thorough evaluation by our Recruitment and Marketing Committee, we’ve given our digital home a significant makeover.

So What’s New?

  1. Modern Design and User-Friendly Interface:

We’ve embraced a sleek, modern design to enhance navigation and make the user’s experience seamless. The new user interface is intuitive, ensuring that you can find what you’re looking for with ease.

  1. Responsive Across Devices:

Whether on a desktop, tablet, or smartphone, our website will adapt to any device, providing a consistent and enjoyable experience no matter how it is accessed.

  1. Improved Content:

Our landing page content has been refined to prioritize user-friendliness. Important services are now immediately accessible with just one click, ensuring a more efficient and streamlined browsing experience.

  1. Better Navigation

Introducing a ‘mega menu’ to the dropdown sections of the navigation bar, we’ve made it simpler for users to find what they’re looking for. Each menu item is accompanied by a description and sub-links for enhanced clarity.

Why the Change?

This relaunch underscores our commitment to providing the best online experience. We’ve carefully considered feedback from our portfolio groups, analysed industry trends, and dedicated time and resources to present a modernised website.
