Hello I’m Jayne Sharples.
My interests include coaching, career development and the future of work. I’m also interested in creating peer communities, learning technology, action planning and other stuff.
I am the Postgraduate Careers Consultant at Careers Network at the University of Birmingham and have now worked in Higher Education for 10 years on various projects. Alongside this role I am group co-ordinator at Coaching Connections Midlands, a professional development group for coaches in the Midlands and I work on exciting freelance projects.
This JS-Coaching website started life as a blog about portfolio careers and the changing nature of our work lives, it has since broadened out to include thinking on all the topics I am interested in. I keep a tab on the various freelance projects I have worked on in the projects section. As well as being my initials “JS” stands for Just Space and Just Start – two themes of coaching which I write about from time to time.
Thanks for taking the time to take a look at the website and I hope you found it of interest!
