Cllr Mallinson's Register of Interests

About Ted:

My name is Edward Mallinson, but am always referred to as Ted Mallinson.

Born in Bournemouth Hampshire (now changed to Dorset)

I served my apprenticeship in Process Control Instrumentation at the Atomic Energy Establishment Winfrith Heath before expatriating to Luanshya Zambia to work on the copper mine there. I set up and ran a Zambian Apprentice scheme for Process Control Instrumentation. This involved sourcing premises, equipment, devising curriculums, employing staff and selecting candidates . This is undoubtedly one of my most memorable achievements, as I remained to see three years of trainees (Approx. One hundred and twenty) complete their apprenticeships. Some of these trainees have now risen to become managers in the copper mines.

I developed my golfing skills and became a leading member of the golf club's entertainment committee, the highlight of which was the organisation of the club's very first New Years Ball attracting over eight hundred guests.

After seven successful years I returned to the UK with my family to commence my career in instrumentation sales. My work involved travel all over Europe; The Middle East and Africa. Whilst working for a major Industrial electronics company I was posted to the United Arab Emirates to manage a small operation in their agent's offices in Abu Dhabi. In order to expand the business I established their own offices, sales and support force there. I was asked by a local Arab Engineering company to take over as their General Manager. Management of this multi racial (primarily Asian and Arab) workforce was probably one of the more challenging roles in my life. I remained in this post until retiring in 2013.

My wife Tanya and I spent the next few years in Cyprus, before settling in Coxley in 2015. I joined the Saint Cuthbert Out Parish Council in 2016. I enjoy my roles in the Parish Council, particularly with an aim to ensure that rural life is maintained in today's advancing tide of new developments.
