Jana Dilger joined Itad in the spring of 2019 as a Business Development Administrator. She works across our bids, leads and account management.
Jana holds a BA in Political Science and Communication Studies from her home country, Germany, and graduated with an MA in Conflict, Security and Development with Distinction from the University of Sussex in 2018. Her MA focused on peacebuilding, post-conflict reconstruction, contemporary global security issues, conflicts in the Middle East and gender. Jana’s final thesis assessed the drivers for the disproportionally large number of Tunisian Jihadists involved in militant groups in conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Mali.
During her studies, Jana volunteered at Renewable World in Brighton, where she was in charge of the charity’s social media content. Jana has experience in public relations, particularly managing events and designing social media strategies. She enjoys travelling, especially to South and Central America – after her Masters, Jana travelled around Colombia and Mexico.
