Jane Fowles

JANE FOWLES

BCA(Hons)

Advisor/Manager

With experience spanning 10 years, Jane started her career in Human Resources working in Wellington – across private, public and tertiary environments which has enabled her to experience a diverse range of businesses and related issues. Jane was fortunate that while studying in Wellington, she was able to work in her chosen field alongside. Jane now holds a Bachelor of Commerce & Administration, with First Class Honours, from Victoria University in Management and Human Resources.

In recent years, due to her now husbands work commitments, Jane has moved to more provincial areas, and so her focus has moved from larger business HR to concentrating on small family owned businesses. She understands the time pressure small businesses are under and enjoys the opportunity to lessen the load. Jane loves the opportunity to partner with a small business owner and work together to come up with solutions based on good practice. No matter what the solution is, it is about adding value to the business – seeing a return on the time spent.

Health & Safety is an area where Jane really sees that value added – ensuring that small businesses have the correct processes in place to not only meet legislative requirements but more importantly, focus on getting everyone home safe at the end of the day, leads to a more sustainable, efficient workplace with healthy staff.

Jane is a highly organised individual who enjoys building solid working relationships – with a determination to continuously seek ways to improve business performance and identify business opportunities. Her main passions are with employee retention, health and safety and learning & development.

Away from work, Jane enjoys spending time with her husband and young children.
