January can be a really hard time of year for many businesses in the service sector. However this January has been a record one for Sportsafe UK. We have hired three new members of staff and won over 170 new customers.

In the Midlands office we have hired two apprentices Alarna and Dan, they are training to be customer service administrators under the careful guidance of manager Jon Burnitt. The new apprentices have been doing really well in their new roles and started to develop as key members of the midlands team.

Jon Burnitt said: “Dan and Alarna have settled in very well and have really taken to their roles. We are delighted to have them on board and they are already making a valuable contribution to the Midlands team.”

This is great news for the team and adds to a fantastic start of the year.

We have also hired a new customer service administrator in the Head office Arron Graham who is settling in well and proving very effective.

Our 170 new customers include a large leisure group based in southern England with over 30 sites and a large group of care homes based in the Midlands with  22 sites. The care home market is one we have previously not worked in so it is a really exciting opportunity for Sportsafe.

January was really successful – setting the standards for the rest of the year; smashing targets, hiring new staff and building new business relationships.
