Match Options began trading in 1999, supplying both temporary and permanent staff to the care sector, and has built up a network of 8 successful branches proving that the business model is both viable and sustainable.
Due to both an ageing population and the pressures on the NHS, the ‘care’ industry is growing and all the indicators are that it will continue to do so. As a Match Options franchisee you will benefit from this growth as the demand for your services increases.
Match Options have existing relationships with all of the above organisations, meaning potential business for you from day one.
The Match Options business model is a ‘Management Franchise’, with your role encompassing managing and motivating a small team in addition to being operational in the day-to-day running of the business. The role is fast-paced and varied, offering lots of challenges.
Typically you will be involved in interviewing and assessing candidates for both temporary and permanent positions, and matching both their skills and experience against available vacancies. You will build relationships with clients and by providing them with the ‘right’ staff with the ‘right’ skills; these clients will continue to use your service building an ongoing income stream. Add to that the management and motivation of your own staff, and the administration associated with owning your own business, and you can see that Match Options offers you the opportunity to operate within an exciting and worthwhile sector as you play an important role in your local community.
One of the main reasons for buying a franchise is the support that you get from your franchisor. It goes without saying that the success of Match Options as a brand, depends on your success as our franchisee.
Our support starts even before you have commenced trading. From advising you on the right location for your office, and supplying a comprehensive launch package to get you started, through to our in-depth training programme covering sales, service interviewing and matching as well as all the administration and procedures and legalities associated with owning a Match Options Franchise. We are committed to providing all the support and assistance that you need throughout your term as a Match Options franchisee.
As well as the initial fee of £25,000 + VAT you will need a minimum of £35,000 as working capital. You will also need to consider your personal funding needs (mortgage etc) whilst the business builds. Banks are very supportive of franchised businesses and (depending on status) may lend approx 50% of the required capital.
