Adrenaline junkie Jack loves sampling life at Sheffield Assay Office - Meet the Team!

24 Nov 2015

Jack Hannon

Before joining Sheffield Assay Office Jack Hannon studied at Manchester University where he achieved a first class MChem (Honours) degree in Chemistry.  

He has been working with us for 14 months as an Analytical Chemist, where his responsibilities centre on the analysis of a variety of sample types. His daily tasks include everything from sample preparation to running the ICP-OES instruments and reporting results to customers. 

Jack says the thing he most loves about his job is the people he works with, and his favourite memory of being at Sheffield Assay Office so far was last year’s Christmas party. His proudest moment in the job is when he gets to run the ICP room independently when he is covering for team leaders.  

When he’s not at work Jack enjoys going on holiday to Spain and Portugal where he likes to indulge in exciting activities including diving and wind surfing. No sitting quietly with a good book: he likes to test himself and go where the action is! 

Apart from holidays Jack relaxes by playing the guitar: he really enjoys playing for other people. He also admits to watching ‘Homes under the Hammer’ as his guilty pleasure. 

We enjoy having Jack as part of our team in Analytical Services and appreciate his enthusiasm and hard work.
