Jan Mc New
Job Title:
Youth Services Manager


Career overview:

I began youth work as a volunteer for the Girls Brigade (for which I am still a leader) and church based youth club in Totton. I have had a varied career working for the Royal Mail for many years in Administration, Training & Development, HR and IT before changing my job completely to work with young people through IYC, for which I am very passionate about.

What do you do at IYC?

I am the Youth Services Manager for IYC and have been with the agency for over 10 years.

My role now largely centres around the organisation and provision of IYC services across the New Forest but I also love delivering small group work and supporting young people in a one to one setting. I was born and have lived most of my life in the New Forest area.

What do you do outside of work?

I am married and have one son and we adopted a very daft cat as part of my family.
