Deputy Secretary to the Council
As a graduate of the University of Kent (Eliot 1989, History), Jo was very happy to come back to the University as a member of staff, originally as a part-time member of the Congregations Office. Jo was the University’s Congregations and Events Manager for approximately five years, and fondly remembers seeing many Kent students graduate in both Canterbury and Rochester Cathedrals. Jo later moved to the Central Secretariat, learning much about the University and developing her role along the way, which led to her appointment as Student Conduct and Complaints Officer in Student Services in 2013. In April 2014, Jo returned to the Central Secretariat as Deputy Secretary of the Council. Jo’s involvement in the University’s many and varied musical activities began when she was a student and continues to this day; she enjoys being part of the friendly University of Kent community.
