New Appointment - Jon Cooper, Heritage Officer, ESMS
Following due process of application and interview, I am delighted to announce that Dr Jon Cooper has been appointed as the new Heritage Officer at ESMS from 5 June 2023. This role replaces the previous Archivist and has been reshaped to include more responsibility to bring our historical archives and collections to life for the whole ESMS community. Jon joins us from the University of Glasgow’s Centre for War Studies and Conflict Archaeology where he has worked as a Tutor/Researcher within the History Department. Prior to that he has worked as an IT Project Manager for the Prudential and served as an Officer in both the Royal Air Force and the P&O Merchant Navy. Jon has a PhD in History and a MLitt in Conflict Archaeology and Heritage from the University of Glasgow.
Having taught in education and curated museum collections, Jon is very interested in ways to bring the Schools’ heritage into the academic and public domain. He is also keen to be involved in extra-curricular activities including history clubs and the CCF. I am sure you will want to join me in welcoming Jon to ESMS when he starts with us in a few weeks’ time.
