Jon joined Aurora as a Health Physics Surveyor and RPS in 2011 and is an integral part of the Aurora team.

Jon has 18 years of experience in the Nuclear Industry, ten of which were while working for Amersham Plc (later GE Healthcare) before moving to AWE Aldermaston in 2005 to become a Health Physics Surveyor.


Whilst working at GE Healthcare Jon was involved in the manufacturing process of iodine-125 sealed sources that were used in the treatment of prostate cancer and rapidly progressed to the chemical department where he was responsible for quality control, internal auditing and waste signatory.
