2035 Kent Jones

Introducing Kent

We would like to give a big welcome to our new member of staff Kent Jones who joined the London & South East team today. Kent joins the team as a trainee and over the next few weeks we will follow Kent as he finds out what it’s like to be a professional archaeologist working at Wessex Archaeology’s’ London & South East Office.
On day 1 Kent was shown around the office and introduced to the team. Pictured below is Team Leader Mark Williams welcoming Kent.
Most of Kent’s first day was taken up with a fairly intensive health and safety induction which included site and office safety, asbestos awareness and a driver assessment which each driver for Wessex Archaeology has to pass. Later in the week Kent will have to pass a CSCS test in order to work on most of our sites.
It wasn’t what Kent was expecting on his first day but as the majority of archaeological works are associated with the construction industry it is essential that all staff are fully trained in a full range of Health and Safety matters. 
We will provide regular updates of Kent’s progress as he learns the ropes and finds out what it is like to be a professional archaeologist right here or follow his progress @WAsoutheast #KentJones
