Our team of face fitters provide a face fit service to companies and groups across the UK, and to individuals on our open face fit days at our headquarters in West Sussex. You can meet the Face Fit Testing team below.
My name is Shaun Jackaman and I am the managing director of Face Fit Testing UK, along with our sister companies, Alpha Training Safety Solutions Limited, and Rescue2 Ltd.
I have over 20 years full time Front Line Emergency Service experience. I have worked in various specialist training roles within the Emergency Services in areas such as Confined Spaces, Breathing Apparatus, Compartment Fire Behaviour training, Specialist Road Traffic Collision and Trauma Care.
I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with so many dedicated and professional colleagues and friends with both the Fire and Rescue Service and my subsequent companies. When I am not working, I enjoy spending valuable time with my family, Titch (the cat who thinks he is a dog) and our gorgeous Australian Labradoodles, Angus and Girty.
I am very excited to have joined Face Fit Testing UK, alongside Alpha Training and Rescue 2 in a role that will be supporting these growing businesses. In my role, I am responsible for the management and development of our teams; along with working with our Clients and Suppliers.
My background in management spans over 20 years, working in both the public and private sectors; managing dedicated teams who support clients with their specific requirements.
In my spare time I design and make jewellery using silver and semi-precious gemstones. I also love travelling (to see friends) and baking cheese straws!
My responsibilities include running the financial aspects of the business, banking and cash flow, looking after any legal matters including premises, vehicle administration and purchasing.
I joined Alpha Training when Rescue 2 Ltd was launched in May 2012 and have seen the companies continue to grow. I have learnt that Health and Safety of people is a key milestone for all serious companies and I am proud to be involved with Face Fit Testing UK, Alpha and Rescue 2 in helping businesses to achieve their goals.
Prior to Alpha, I worked for a major bank, the last 16 as ‘an old fashioned’ Bank Manager and some years before the crash I up skilled myself for my new career in company finance, an area I have been involved ever since
I am married with two independent boys (men) one runs the family business which we have owned for 12 years now.
My wife and I live down on the Sussex coast having spent 12 months completely refurbishing our new home. In my time away from the business I am a keen touring cyclist, winter is taken up playing league badminton and playing my tenor saxophone. I have a keen interest in most forms of sport, playing and watching. Love travelling.
I first became involved in working for Alpha Training after leaving university, I wanted to take a year off to decide which career direction I wanted to go in and I’ve been with the company ever since! Since then I have started working for our new comapnies, Face Fit Testing UK, and Rescue 2.
I really enjoy the work that I do for Face Fit Testing UK, especially interacting with our clients, receiving great feedback about our services and work here is a real buzz.
In my spare time I like to relax at home with my husband, daughter, and our two cats, I love all thing’s outdoors and I enjoy mountain biking and going to the gym. As a company some of us recently cycled 75 miles off road from London to Brighton for the British Heart Foundation. It really was an amazing experience and we hope to do something similar again soon.
I’ve just started as a Finance Assistant Apprentice. I wanted to get into accountancy for a while and I am excited to have the opportunity to learn and grow through Face Fit Testing UK. I am excited for the chance to change the direction of my career and feel this company is a wonderful fit for me with its atmosphere of encouraging growth.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my partner and friends, often playing board games. I also read a lot of fiction books and enjoy creative writing. I have also been learning how to garden, with the hope of growing my own vegetables.
My role is the Resource Manager for Rescue 2 Ltd, Alpha Training Safety Solutions Ltd and Face Fit Testing UK Ltd.
Our duties include ensuring all businesses have the equipment and resources needed to perform all the tasks in the professional way that is expected, the control of all equipment servicing, calibration, repairs and maintaining a professional, workable office and training areas.
Previously to working here I was head of facilities for over 15 years, this gave me the skill set to work in a high-pressure environment and the knowledge of buildings regulations, planning and executing building maintenance or improvement projects.
In my spare time I am a big gamer and love to play open world RPG’s (very geeky) I also enjoy military aircraft past and present and attend air shows as much as possible.
My role includes Face Fit Testing around the country providing fit tests to individuals and business across the UK. I also assist the Equipment and Logistics Lead, with the maintainance and servicing of the huge array of equipment, ensuring the Alpha Group of companies and the trainers have correct and suitable equipment for each job.
Working at Face Fit Testing UK, Alpha Training and Rescue 2, came out of nowhere really but as soon as I heard about the opportunity I knew it would be something I would really enjoy doing.
Dealing with all the various equipment that the company uses I find endlessly interesting and I can’t wait to expand my knowledge in all areas of the companies ever evolving needs, learn some new skills on the way and hopefully help some people in the process, but with the great team of people they have here I’m sure there will be no end as to what they can teach me.
While I’m not working I enjoy being outside, working out, heading down to Cornwall to go surfing (one day I will move there) and taking part in various and obscure extreme sports, however an evening in playing video games or binge watching Game of Thrones is never a bad option in my book.
