An unimpressive foray into the first-class game in the late 1980s after he had played for Zimbabwe in the 1988 Under-19 World Cup did nothing to suggest that Glen Bruk-Jackson would earn international honours. However, a move from Alexandra Sports Club to Harare Sports Club in 1993-94 reignited his career so successfully that he won a place on the tour of Pakistan largely on the back of a hundred against Orange Free State B. Despite being a specialist batsmen, his two Test appearances, both early in that series, were in the lower middle-order, and at the end of that trip he won his only ODI cap. He never quite recaptured that form and drifted out of the game.
