Starting out in shoe repair and hand shoemaking, he moved into shoe manufacturing some ten years later. His career has included working at SATRA, the world renowned footwear research organisation, working in a major shoe manufacturing company in Kenya, as well as doing footwear consultancy work in South Africa, Canada, France, New Zealand and USA.

People in the footwear business tend to be specialists. Often they have spent most of their career in perhaps men's welted shoes or ladies' high fashion footwear. Others are experts on rubber/moulding technology of soles, patterns and design, or lasts and fit. It is unusual to find somebody like Frank Jones, who is a broad-based footwear technologist.
