Her last role was Commercial Director of a large newspaper group in the Midlands. Both faced redundancy and started to research franchising as a career opportunity.
Clare recalls: “I found that Auditel was a good fit with my previous experience. I liked the culture and everybody I met was very professional and helpful.” Debbie cites: “Infrastructure, brand, matching my skill set, an opportunity to be successful and flexibility.”
Both found the training very effective. Claire said: “It was very informative and I feel prepared to get going!” Debbie pronounced: “Excellent, fun and enjoyable. You are given an assurance that you are ready to ‘do the job’.”
Claire adds: “My background has provided the customer focus, project management and analytical skills required for an Auditel consultant. I plan to work closely with my clients to become a trusted member of their management team and deliver a tailored solution to save them both significant time and money.”
Edward Brewer, Auditel’s Franchise Development Director, says: “This group reflects our wide-ranging potential to satisfy the aims of those seeking a career change. It included one partnership, a franchisee joining an existing business and Claire and Debbie who had faced redundancy.
“So, if you are a management professional seeking an outstanding opportunity and who wish to build a really substantial business either by yourself or with partners and staff – do take a look at the Auditel franchise. Our award winning training programmes are second to none and you will find tremendous support from our team and your fellow franchisees. We have a few free Discovery Seminars still available this year and would look forward to meeting you!”
