Do you enjoy bringing out the best in people? Are you ready to fall in love with your profession again?

Are you empathetic and a good listener?

Do you pride yourself on understanding others and helping them understand themselves?

If you answered yes, you’ll make a great Franchise Partner in an industry which boasted a revenue of £373.6m in 2022, and was a year-on-year increase of 11.2%*

The size of this market, in the UK, has also grown by 7.8% per year, on average, between 2017 and 2022, increasing faster than the economy overall. *

Our franchise will help you make use of all your interpersonal skills to grow a successful business offering an elite matchmaking service that makes a real difference to people’s lives.

So, what do we do?

We are an elite matchmaking and introductions agency working with affluent, discerning, successful, busy professionals offering an offline elite matchmaking service to help them find love in a safe, secure, and confidential manner.

We specialise in having a deep understanding of our clientele so that we can facilitate hand-selected introductions to other single, like-minded people who have the same lifestyle, values and aspirations as they do.

Our ultimate goal is to help our clients find long-term committed relationships with the right connections, without them having to navigate the perils of the modern dating scene alone. No stress, no time-wasting, and no apps, no swiping, no internet profiles – just a multiple award-winning service designed around making meaningful connections

Could this be the opportunity for you?

You will be one of our “Angels” helping to rewrite the rules of the modern dating industry. You’ll act as matchmaking head-hunter, adhering to the highest possible standards of professionalism and ethics, while still being friendly and approachable.

We are looking for highly motivated, dedicated, talented people to join us and provide a localised, very personal service. You’ll use your understanding of where your clients are based and the types of people within that locality to make a real difference to people’s lives.

Our tried-and-tested business model will enable you to build a successful business anywhere in the UK as part of an industry which is incredibly rewarding, professionally and personally.

Unlike the majority of other dating agencies in the UK, all of our matchmakers have completed training and been accredited by the Matchmaking Institute.

We offer:

  • A recession-resilient industry
  • A people-centric business
  • Learning from the very best
  • A better work-life balance

Are you our ‘match’?

There is no one set profile for who will make a great candidate for us; our current matchmakers come from all kinds of backgrounds and this is a big part of why we are so successful.

Our training, accreditations and mentorship will teach you everything you need; however, we have found that there are certain skills and attitudes which are absolutely essential in this industry:

  • Strong transferable skills
  • Great listening & communication skills
  • Empathetic & insightful
  • Professional & ethical
  • Hard-working & driven
  • A genuine desire to help others
  • A great networker

Our Training & Support

There are 3 days online training with certification as a qualified MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) practitioner, and 12 hours modular online Matchmaker certification with The Matchmaking Institute. This can take place at any time during your onboarding period part of your training as it is self-guided.

The 2 days face-to-face training with the relevant experts from our team, usually takes place at our head office in London, and covers:

  • Sales, marketing and lead conversion

We’re 100% committed to giving you as much support as we possibly can.

You can secure your place with us for the initial franchise fee of just £15,000 plus VAT; the total investment in your franchise is £39,995 + VAT and gives you:

Exactly how much you can expect to earn from your franchise will, ultimately, be down to you; the amount of hard work, and commitment you are willing to put in, as well as how well you follow the proven guidelines and procedures that we lay out for you.
