Introducing, Franchise Moves Careers! The new recruitment agency dedicated to the franchise industry
Updated: Feb 12
We are excited to launch our new recruitment agency dedicated to the franchise industry, Franchise Moves Careers.
As franchise experts with nearly 20 years experience, we understand that recruitment within the industry can be hard. So, we make it easy for you! We can help you to find the best people for the key roles within your business, whether that be a Finance Director, a Head of Sales, Senior Management or anything in between.
We can also act as support to help you find your own next step in your franchising career. Whether you have just graduated and are keen to get into franchising, or perhaps you are an experienced franchise professional looking for a new challenge.
With 710,000 people now employed in the industry, and this figure growing quickly, there is the need for a recruitment agency that is dedicated to franchising alone, backed by solid experience and sound knowledge– and we are thrilled to fill that gap!
So, why trust us? With nearly 20 years in the franchise industry we've been successful franchisors ourselves. We've run a national network of commercial recruitment agencies and we continue to make award-winning waves as one of the UK's leading bfa accredited franchise consultancies with its own franchisee recruitment division.
At Franchise Moves, we will always promise you absolute discretion. Quietly looking for a new role in an industry as close-knit as franchising can be challenging – you don’t necessarily want everyone to know you’re leaving (or suddenly available!). We understand the unique needs of the franchising industry from our own first-hand experience, which means we know exactly how to handle your career moves.
Equally, recruiting for a newly vacant position is often something employers prefer to keep under the wire until they can proudly announce a great new appointment. And of course on the other hand, sometimes both candidates and employers want their availability or requirements shouted from the roof-tops – rest assured, we know how to do that too. We work flexibility to meet your own needs and ensure your experience with us is 5 star from our first contact right through to ‘you’re hired’!
There truly has never been a better time to get into franchising. Impressive figures were revealed from last year’s bfa and NatWest ‘UK Franchise Industry’ survey. It found that franchising generated £17.2 billion to the UK economy in 2018 and there are currently around 953 franchises systems that operate in the UK. It was also revealed that 93% of franchisees claimed profitability, 30% of all franchisees are female (the highest since the survey began), and 18% of franchisees are now under 30!
