Meet the Manchester Team
Pete served as part of the Royal Green Jackets and was posted to a variety of locations including the United Kingdom, Cyprus, Kenya and Fiji, the latter as part of the British Army Recruiting Group selecting candidates from Fiji for the British Army. On Operations, Pete spent 3 years in Northern Ireland and was presented with a Mention in Dispatches as part of his teams’ actions in August 1992.
Upon joining MPCT in 2006, Pete began as an Instructor at MPC Cardiff before becoming the Lead Instructor in Wrexham and has progressed through the Company since then.
As well as having a physical training background, Pete is an avid exercise enthusiast and has taken part in a variety of endurance challenges to raise money for local charities. Pete feels that the mark of a good society is what we do for the most vulnerable within it to make their lives better. Pete is extremely proud to be part of MPCT, supporting young people in their career progression, and finds it extremely rewarding.
"The most rewarding part of the job is seeing learners progress within their chosen career. I enjoy helping them with any barriers they need to overcome and it gives me a sense of pride to see them develop into professional and focused young people."
Regional Operations Manager
I previously served 5 years in the 1st Battalion Irish Guards. During this period of my life I had the honour of taking part in Her Majesty’s Birthday Parade, “The Trooping of the Colour”. When not on ceremonial duties, I spent time abroad in places such as Latvia, The Falklands and Thailand, developing my skills as an Infantry Soldier.
After hanging up my boots, I pursued my dream of travelling around America. Whilst there, I also worked in summer camps with young people. I made some amazing memories and really enjoyed the backpacking lifestyle.
Since returning to England, I have spent the past few years working in a residential children’s home for young people suffering with mental health issues. I have found this line of work to be very rewarding.
I play football as a hobby, which I do up to three times a week when time permits. At football, I enjoy playing in a centre-forward position and scoring goals into the top right-hand corner like a postage stamp.
I am looking forward to starting with MPCT and guiding the next generation onto an illustrious path in their chosen service.
