Jared studied mechanical engineering at Derby university. After completion he went to train as a draughtsman at European Gas Turbines in Lincoln (which is now Siemens Energy).
Next stop was with a long established, commercial catering and sanitary ware manufacturer in Derbyshire, W&G Sissons Ltd. At Sissons he had many roles during 15 years service, including product design, production engineering, sales, marketing and senior management. Sissons was taken over by a Swiss company (Franke) which enabled Jared to gain experience in Europe and further afield.
In 2013 he joined Conformance Ltd, a CE Marking Consultancy, as a Consultant specialising in the recently implemented Construction Products Regulation eventually moving into the role of Commercial manager due to his experience in this field. At the later end of 2021 Jared joined former colleagues at their existing company, Authorised Rep Compliance Ltd, and together with them set up Product Compliance Support Ltd.
He likes to spend his spare time getting out into the countryside and also rebuilding and driving classic American vehicles.
