Meet the Team - Matt Hawker (Quality Manager)

01 Jul 2014

Matt Hawker is an integral member of the Sheffield team, having been at the Assay Office for the past 16 years.  Now wearing several hats, including that of Quality Manager and XRF Team Leader, Matt was recently elected by colleagues to represent them at the organisation’s twice yearly Guardian's meetings.

After leaving York University with a degree in Chemistry and joining the Assay Office team, Matt was initially involved in silver and gold analysis in the laboratory and was instrumental in the development of the company's use of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) machines - a process that protects the unsuspecting public from fraud as part of the hallmarking process.

Undeniably a team player, Matt can often be found helping colleagues and loves having input across several areas of the business.  He's very proud to have responsibility for maintaining the organisations UKAS accreditation; a crucial requirement that allows the company to continue operating in its field.

Having a wife and two toddlers to keep him on his toes doesn't leave him much spare time but Matt still manages to indulge in his love of cooking, play table tennis in the local league and support his beloved Sheffield Wednesday FC where he's a season ticket holder.
