Jess has held various roles within Wessex Fire and Security, most recently as a service manager.

As I have had various roles within Wessex Fire & Security I already know the staff and understand the ethos and values that set us apart. It is a family owned business and while we have expanded over the years we still put a great deal of emphasis on our local connections and community.”
