Jenni Proctor is a career practitioner with broad experience in Career Development as a career coach, career counsellor, career consultant and career education specialist. As an award winning careers professional, she combines a passion for career development across the lifespan with a strong background in management and education. Her career coaching and counselling experience covers all ages, with a particular interest in older workers, and all stages of career from school students to Executive Coaching.
She has been the President of the Career Development Association of Australia’s Queensland division and has served time on the CDAA National Executive Council. She is also a member of the International Coach Federation.
Jenni studied for a Master of Career Development whilst working as a teacher librarian/resource centre manager. This combination of roles led to a very successful innovative career development program at the elementary school where she worked. This program was recognized twice in consecutive years by the prestigious Judith Leeson Excellence in Career Teaching Award, conferred by the Australian Career Service.
In private practice she has specialized in mid-life career dissatisfaction and change, as well as career education consultancy work. The business focus on mid-life career change expanded to Baby Boomers who were planning the most significant transition of their lives and to assisting people who had been made redundant.
Jenni has presented at several CDAA conferences, professional development sessions for CDAA and other career associations, and for major education organisations around Australia. She has had articles published in career journals in Australia, as well as newspapers and a women’s magazine.
She is a director of Clarity Connections Pty Ltd, trading as Clarity Career Management, in addition to Young at Heart.
Clarity Career Management work is based on our proprietary Clarity Blueprint.
What is the Clarity Career Management Blueprint?
Clarity Career Management Blueprint represents our methodology which supports clients in their decision making at all stages of life.
It is based on Career Development Theories and Frameworks and supported by the experience of working for many years with people at different stages of career development, from the very young to retirees.
It provides a powerful visual image of the process that individuals need to go through during times of transition whilst making career and life decisions. It gives them the self-knowledge, the strategies and ultimately the freedom to successfully manage their career into the future.
The Clarity Career Management Blueprint is at the heart of all our programs.
Each stage of this process is essential, but different stages will be more important to people at different stages of their lives.
Explanation of the Blueprint
The CLARITY Career Management Blueprint has evolved from my work within Career Development, literally at all stages of the life span, from children in their early years at school to retirees choosing to maintain an active working life.
Each stage of career development has its own needs and challenges, so obviously some parts of the process are more important at different times and to different people. However the recursive nature of career development requires that the spiral of internalising knowledge, skills and attitudes be ongoing throughout the lifespan.
Career development, to be meaningful to a client, must be holistic, recognising that each individual has a life outside their work with its own demands, challenges and responsibilities that impact on their career decisions.
Career theories and frameworks, and practical resources such as the Australian Blueprint for Career Development, have always informed my practice and ongoing professional development. They are embedded in the CLARITY Career Management Blueprint, and so are embedded in all services that are based on this Blueprint.
The Blueprint isn’t meant to be used strictly in sequence. The sequence is a guideline, but the natural flow of career development requires that there will be some fluidity between the components of the blueprint.
