Meet The Team – Marianne Borland

Our meet the team series – Marianne Borland

The best trainer team always requires the best support team. I am an administration assistant at the Co-operative starting early in 2018. My main roles are processing the first aid paperwork from courses, keeping in touch with venues, updating courses details on various platforms and any other admin tasks that may arise!

The Co-operative has a friendly and inclusive ethos which resonates down through the internet ether as, despite working alone from home, I very much feel part of a team.

As well as working for the Co-operative I run a maths tutoring business (I was a maths teacher in a former life) tutoring local secondary school children and writing maths resources. I am also Mum to four lovely kids and two kittens.

In my spare time I like to run and keep fit. I have recently run a couple of half marathons and despite vowing to never to do so again, I have signed up for a couple more next year.  My family and I enjoy camping holidays in the sunshine and for the last couple of years have made the long drive to France and Italy.  This year, however, we are trading the sunshine for some snow as we embark on our first family skiing holiday.
