Jo knows a lot about career change as she’s on her 4th career!
She is a career coach and is passionate about helping other people to have a less stressful time finding a career that’s right for them.
Jo moved from working in market research to the not for profit world 7 years ago, which coincided with her move from the UK to Australia. Wanting to make a difference and have a positive impact on the world she spent 7 years working for 3 well-known Australian charities in project management, marketing and fundraising. The highlight of this time was travelling to the favelas of Brazil, a beautiful but remote island in Fiji and a very rural community in Malawi to make documentary films.
In early 2016 Jo decided she wanted to help other people find their purpose and be productive in their work. After retraining as a coach, she set up her coaching business, Jo Green Coaching. Jo coaches people who are feeling stuck and are questioning their current job or career path and want to make a career change.
Jo is really passionate about the not for profit space and also coaches people who run small, for purpose businesses such as social enterprises.
Not one to sit still, she has just finished a course in sustainability and leadership, and she sits on the board for a refugee NGO that’s based in Melbourne.
