A Select Appointments franchise office supplies temporary and permanent staff to companies within a protected territory. Each franchise is its own local recruitment business and uses the strength of an established national brand to build its reputation. All offices operate from town or city locations pre-approved by Select, with premises fitted to approved corporate standards. Franchise and company offices are indistinguishable in the eyes of candidates and clients. All offices use the same proven quality accredited systems and have access to a comprehensive range of head office support functions and national major contracts.
Experience of the recruitment industry is not essential for franchisees but dedication to success and the ability to develop long-term customer relationships and motivate teams are important. Select provides its franchisees with all the necessary tools to run a successful recruitment business; in 2005, 40 per cent of established franchisees generated in excess of £1 million turnover.
Barbara Law, a Select franchisee for Basingstoke, Farnborough, Kingston-upon-Thames and Brighton said, “Select’s continuous commitment to improving business processes through substantial investment in new technology has been of great benefit to my business. In the nine years since buying my first Select franchise, both front and back office systems have developed immeasurably and, as a franchisee, it is gratifying to see tangible evidence that your financial investment in the business is being utilised in this directly beneficial way.”
Select is open to applications for most areas of the UK and Ireland where it is not already represented, and has a ‘wish list’ of future offices that include Carlisle, Colchester, Derby, Inverness, Wolverhampton, Plymouth, Stoke-on-Trent, Watford and York.
