Jan Rowan

Careers and Employability Adviser, UCA Canterbury

Professional Services,

After completing a BA(Ed) (Hons) History degree with QTS at the University of Reading, Jan worked for three years in a technical library at Foster Wheeler Ltd (Engineering/Oil & Gas) with plans to train as a librarian. 

A job change in 1999 with CfBT Careers steered Jan away from librarianship towards educational guidance and careers advice.  

Following CfBT Jan worked as a Guidance Adviser at Newbury College in Berkshire and then moved to a similar position at Mid-Kent College in Maidstone.

In 2006 Jan completed the postgraduate Qualification in Careers Guidance (QCG) at Canterbury Christ Church University and swiftly joined UCA as a full-time careers adviser.

Jan's professional interests include: career influences, stories and pathways; career coaching; graduate employability and career transitions.
