“If you have a fixed idea of your plan, you might not see new opportunities open up.” – An interview with Jane Such

Introducing you to Sophie Edensor’s Zoom Women Rock interview with Jane Such, a Client Principal at Agilesphere.


NAME

Jane Such

ROLE

Client Principal

WHAT I DO

I oversee the delivery contracts for the Ministry of Justice Crime programme, ensuring contractual outputs and targets are met while adding value and keeping the client and the associates happy. I also act as a bid manager for new sales opportunities. As and when opportunities arise I participate or lead on internal projects.

MY BACKGROUND

I have worked in IT for over 35 years delivering projects and providing consultancy across a multitude of delivery roles and industries. Several of my roles have involved writing sales proposals and presentations. One of my favourite roles was leading the UK software testing function for a large international consultancy company.

MANTRA

Balance is the key to everything

WHEN NOT WORKING I…

I am watching dramas on TV, wild swimming, doing beginners yoga, walking or cycling.

WHAT WOULD YOU NOT HAVE GUESSED ABOUT ME

I am a fairly open book but you may not know that I used to be technical, I started my career as an Assembler programmer in the engineering team for a local electricity board. More recently I specialised in software testing, having had a couple of articles published in Test Magazine and an expert opinion quote in The Times.

FUN FACTS

I am learning to grow vegetables in my garden and I have made bread for the first time this year. My third attempt at a plain loaf was very edible and I am now moving on to sourdough.
