He was recruited as the number 29 draft pick in the 2000 AFL Draft from Northern Eagles in Queensland. He made his debut for the Brisbane Lions in Round 5, 2001 against Fremantle and played in the Lions' 2003 grand final win over Collingwood.
The 197 cm, 102 kg, Jamie Charman became renowned for his crash and bash approach to ruckwork, similar to that of former teammate Clark Keating (former Brisbane Lions ruck coach).
While lacking genuine ruck height and technical ruck technique, Charman is renowned for tough tackling and intensity at the contest.
Charman retired on 3 August 2011 due to an ongoing achilles injury.
In late 2011, Charman joined NRL side the North Queensland Cowboys as their part time kicking and catching coach. Charman was approached by the Cowboys football manager Peter Parr and has received blessing from the Brisbane Lions to undertake the role for the 2012 season.
