He is a member of the UK Chapter of the Select Society of Sanitary Sludge Shovellers.

He has a wealth of experience of wastewater treatment, anaerobic digestion, reject water treatment, foodwaste digestion, and organic waste treatment. He is a practising scientist, dividing his time amongst desk based design work, on-site commissioning and operation, and field based laboratory work.

Jon is an Engineer with a BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering from Kingston University, and an MSc in Biofuels Process Engineering from Cranfield University. He is currently studying for a PhD in Energy.

Jon and Steve are both graduates of Cranfield University, and have worked with each other in a variety of different roles since 1999. Jon has been working for Helix ECL part-time since 2016 whilst studying for his PhD.

Jon has a wealth of experience of effluent and sludge treatment, with over 25 years experience in the water industry. Jon has worked as a Process Engineer, a Proposals Engineer, a Procurement Manager, and a Proposal Manager, so has an excellent balance of technical knowledge, estimating experience, and quantum analysis. Jon has worked on negotiated and competitive costing of projects up to a value of £180 million, and quantum analysis for claims of loss up to £74 million.
