Meet the Cox & Co. Payroll Team

Cox & Co. positions itself as a bureau that wants to make a positive difference in the payroll, pension and reward industry. We’re a small team but very proud to be double award winners for innovation, Founding Members of the Payroll Bureau Association and actively involved in promoting payroll apprenticeships as a career choice to school leavers.

Read on to discover what we have been quietly achieving in the background whilst also processing payroll and pensions.

Why do clients value our team spirit?

“Nothing is too much trouble. All the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They go above and beyond the call of duty. Everyone in the company really make you feel that you are the most important client to them even when they are really busy… In short they are indispensable and I would have no hesitation in recommending Cox & Co. for all your payroll needs.”

Global Payroll Student of the Year 2023 – Daniel Bishop

Our apprentice Daniel Bishop grabbed the limelight at this year’s glittering global payroll awards held at the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh.

Only 10 months into his payroll apprenticeship, Daniel Bishop ACIPP shone bright at the Global Payroll Awards held in the prestigious surroundings of The National Museum of Scotland on 8th June 2023. Both of our apprentices Daniel and Bella Cox ACIPP were shortlisted from submissions from as far wide as Brazil, Singapore and Australia.

Daniel joined Cox & Co. straight from 6th form college after studying Game Design and Game Art at Access Creative College Bristol aged 19. He told us at his initial interview in August 2022 that he was ‘ready to launch into a career’ – and so he has – with absolute splendour! Daniel has played an integral part in our customer success programmes, creating ‘explainer’ videos for employers and employees, MS Access databases for data streamlining and also learning payroll processing during his formal Level 3 payroll apprenticeship training. His talents, skills and technical enthusiasm has led to his success in the business and resulted in him being spotlighted and awarded by the international payroll industry. We are so proud of his achievements.

Tracy Jerram CMgr MCMI MCIPP reflects: “Cox & Co. supports creative, innovative and entrepreneurial individuals and this accolade really does reflect the value we place on apprenticeships and providing a fantastic career path.”

Payroll apprentices really do have a brilliant future ahead of them in the profession when the right training and support is provided. And, this was reaffirmed when in May 2023 one of the UK’s top apprenticeship providers, Leicestershire County Council’s Adult Learning Services commented on our provision. Tracy adds “It is brilliant that outside impartial training providers value the support and experiential learning we provide to our trainees.
