Jake Sansom - Trainee SHEQ Consultant

Jake joined WA management in August 2018 whilst still studying for an MSc in Exercise Science at the University of Birmingham.

He has had various previous roles including Sports Science and Coaching, Hospitality and Grounds Maintenance. Before moving back to the UK to study for his masters in 2017, Jake lived in Australia for 2 years, where he spent most of this time working in demolition. This gave him great exposure to all manner of dangerous works and to the importance of Health and Safety. Particularly working at height in sweltering 40+°C heat with poisonous spiders lurking in roof spaces! Luckily Jake is applying knowledge he acquired in demolition to learning the Health and Safety trade and plans to achieve his NEBOSH qualifications soon.

Jake spends his spare time following Newcastle United, watching as much boxing as he can, listening to music, reading, and drinking Newcastle Brown Ale. However, he doesn’t usually do this all at the same time! (Usually).
