Jane joined the Neighbourhood Watch Network in April 2021 as Volunteer Development Manager. Her role is to build a volunteer framework for the organisation and develop training and guidance for volunteers.
Jane had a long-term career in the IT industry before moving to the voluntary sector in 2004. Her first job in the voluntary sector was with Victim Support where she ended up staying for over 12 years in a variety of paid and unpaid roles including volunteer management, project co-ordination, complaints management, and PA. Alongside her work at Victim Support she also completed a part-time degree in Voluntary Sector Studies via distance learning, which was a really challenging but satisfying experience.
Most recently she’s been working for a small local organisation finding homes in the private rented sector for people who have previously been homeless, where she was responsible for the operational service. She also enjoys doing voluntary work alongside her paid work when opportunity allows
