Jan started her working life at a stockbroker which set her on the path of working in the financial sector. After leaving the stockbroker, she joined Gartmore Fund Managers, and then moved on to Arbuthnot Latham, Morgan Grenfell, Singer & Friedlander and Bank of New York Mellon, where she gathered many years of administration experience.
Outside of work, Covid put a stop to a lot of things Jan used to do, mainly socialising with friends. Not being a fan of gyms, she continues to do a lot of walking as well as pedalling on her exercise bike whilst (what can only be loosely described as) singing along to music. This is much to the horror of the household, the cat and surrounding wildlife as, in her own words, she is completely tone deaf.
