Vijay joins us from the exciting world of software development, having headed up customer service and support functions in young, high growth tech companies. He brings an innate passion for first-class service delivery and maximising smiles in general! Most recently Vijay worked for an education-technology start-up helping support the delivery of better Apprenticeship learning systems. Headhunted from a technology subsidiary of Hargreaves Lansdown, the Bristol based FTSE 100 financial services powerhouse, having built a high performing service division for the multi-million profit company. He takes pride in growing strong, trusted relationships with colleagues and clients, and boasts a record of 100% retention of staff and customers in senior management.
Vijay has grown a passion for sport since childhood having represented schools and local clubs at, as he describes, a ‘recreational level’ in football, rugby, cricket, tennis, and swimming. This included captaining the school football team, and reaching the Under 18s County Cup Final. During University Vijay was a regular for the first XV rugby team and a committee member co-ordinating social events, entertainment and sponsorship.

Sarah is passionate about children and families’ social and emotional wellbeing. She was also a sociable committee member at University, running many fun dance club events. Together they are a dream team to launch and grow Sport4Kids around Bristol and North Somerset. They launch in their new town of Portishead having recently moved house from Bedminster, Bristol. They are expecting their first (human) child in February!

This is a brilliant opportunity to partner and grow a large business through the perfect combination of sport, children’s development, and entertainment.

We launch in Portishead and Henbury in February, and are determined to grow across Bristol and North Somerset as quickly as we can maintain the quality. Most of all we are looking forward to having a great time along the way, developing deep relationships in the community, and putting as many smiles on as many kids as possible!”
