About Darren Jackson
I have been working in the construction industry since leaving school back in 1985, I originally trained as a Carpenter & Joiner for the Leeds City Council and have also studied & gained qualifications in Construction Crafts, Surveying & Levelling & Craft Supervision.
I then studied Gas Safety and gained my C.O.R.G.I & Gas Safe Licence along with Energy Efficiency Certificates and I am fully Licenced Gas Safe Registered Engineer. I ran my own construction business from 2004 to 2021 before deciding to leave the long hours, working weekends and the stress of running a company behind me – especially now I am a grandfather. In my spare time (now I have some!), I like watching sci-fi and I am a self-confessed trekie. I am often found tinkering in my workshop & making garden furniture.
