Greg Giddins - Finance Manager

Greg joined the College in March 2008. Looking after the College’s financial well-being, he also heads up our fundraising, marketing and digital communications, seeing his role as helping all departments to maximise their performance. After qualifying as a chartered accountant, Greg has worked in a variety of commercial and finance roles. Much of his spare time is taken up by his 3 boys, but in revenge he indoctrinated them into a life of following Blackburn Rovers (although one has rebelled).

Sheree Sandbach - Finance Officer

Sheree joined the Co-operative College in 2012. During her time at the College, Sheree has studied for her accountancy qualifications with the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) - qualifying in 2016, and now has full member accreditation. Sheree deals with the day to day finances of the College and the Co-operative Heritage Trust. She is a keen Manchester United supporter (continuing the trend!).

Andrew Mallinson - Marketing and Communications Officer

Andrew joined the College right at the start of 2017 and is responsible for everything from press releases through to social media. With a background in marketing and communications and a passion for education, the role has been a great fit. Outside of work he enjoys lots of different sports and the gym which handily negates his love of eating out.

Manu Pérez - Digital Communications Co‑ordinator

With a background in Journalism and Digital Communications, Manu started at the College as an intern back in 2010 to support the development of the website and digital technologies. It's rained a lot since then (after all, this is Manchester). Manu is behind most of the College's printed materials and designs as well as videos and any other digitally related tasks (sometimes even helping to restart a computer).

Paul Cocker - Funding and Partnerships Development Officer

Paul Joined the Co-operative College in March 2017 after working in the third sector in numerous fundraising and business development roles in Manchester, London, Australia and New Zealand. As Funding & Partnership Development Officer, Paul looks after everything to do with fundraising. Outside of work Paul enjoys travel, the arts and is an amateur playwright. He doesn't support Manchester United (controversial we know).
