I started my career in geotechnical site investigation at Rogers Geotechnical 6 years ago as a second man on a premier window sampling rig where later I learnt the first man role. After a short time I moved into their laboratory as laboratory manager carrying out a number of geotechnical testing on samples from window samples, rotary and cable percussive rigs. At this time also completing level 2 with the Open University in geology. From there I went into environmental monitoring with Enitial undertaking gas monitoring, water level dipping/sampling and low flow sampling amongst many others before moving to ESG as a field tech and lead driller. Here I have undertaken a wide range of ground and structural investigations including window sampling.
I graduated from the University of Keele, Staffordshire in the June of 2011, from which I immediately started work within the mining industry. I gained a position as an Exploration Geologist working in mineral exploration for a large international company, primarily in Central and North America. I held this position for three years before deciding to return to the UK in 2014. I started with GeoCon Site Investigations Ltd in August of 2014 as a Junior Engineering Geologist. This has opened me up to a new aspect of geology, developing my engineering knowledge and skills greatly within this field. It has been a particularly enriching experience as I am continually learning from my peers and the experience I gain from real world situations. I am thoroughly enjoying the new challenge.
