Auditel has continued its successful 2011 franchise recruitment campaign, which saw the launch of its 200th franchise location, with the recent intake of a number of new franchise owners.

Among Auditel’s group of new franchise owners was Oldham-based Jon Wellings, an experienced IT Programme Director, with a reputation for delivering large, complex, high risk programmes and services. Commenting on his decision to join Auditel, Wellings said: “It's a difficult decision to move from the corporate world into self-employment. However, Auditel ticked all the boxes and have really helped me make the transition smoothly. The training was first class and a really useful start to my Auditel career.”

Another in the group was Nasser Butt, who lives in Surrey. He is a qualified Accountant with a background of providing Application Managed Services to major private sector organisations. Nasser said: “Auditel matched my needs, skill set and could be a vehicle to achieve my objectives for the next few years. The training gave me the knowledge base and confidence to get in front of my first client.”

Commenting on the high level of applications for an Auditel franchise, Laurance Knott, of Auditel, said: “Applications recognise the value of our cost and purchase management service in these challenging economic times. Higher earners are enjoying an income of over £200,000. Now is the time for any management professional who is seeking a career change to approach us. Auditel’s free Discovery Seminars give an indication of what may be achieved within the franchise which can provide financial, business and personal satisfaction.”

As well as achieving a successful franchise recruitment campaign, this year also saw Auditel being selected as finalists, together with only five other franchisors, to win the HSBC Franchisee Support Award for 2011. This award, which is managed by the British Franchise Association (bfa), is given to the franchisor who stands out as providing exceptional support to its franchise owners, to give them the best possible environment for success.
