Auditel has continued its UK franchise growth with the recruitment of a number of new franchise owners.

Among the latest Auditel franchise owners were Sarah Winyard and Ben Scott-Nelson.

Until recently, Winyard was a Senior Commercial Manager for HSBC. Commenting on why she chose to buy an Auditel franchise she said: “I wanted to run my own business and was given a real chance after a long, long time in banking – 27 years – to take a step back and think about what I wanted to do. So, I started doing some research to see what type of business would suit me and looked at several franchise opportunities. Auditel seemed to offer a proposition that was a good fit with my existing skills, my contacts and my networking ability – so that was a start. Then I came to a Discovery Seminar and was really impressed with the team, their values, the ethos and everything. I went away and did some due diligence. I realised that they offered a fantastic support package, which would help me to grow the business and make it sustainable. That’s why I chose Auditel.”

Before Nottingham-based Scott-Nelson joined Auditel, he was a Senior IT Solutions Account Manager with previous experience in estate agency. Scott-Nelson said: “I looked into a number of franchise opportunities. I selected Auditel because of the strong brand, the right business model and the detailed training package. I had confidence in the high level of backing on offer; the bfa has recognised Auditel for their support over the years and that was important to me.”

Winyard said: “The training course has given me confidence in the sales process. The team was excellent and kept our motivation going.” Scott-Nelson added: “Auditel managed to create an atmosphere which was relaxed and fun. As a result, we are able to put the information we absorbed into practice straight away.”

Edward Brewer, Auditel’s Franchise Development Director, said: “Auditel has had an excellent year both on recruitment and recognition within the industry; winner of the bfa HSBC Franchise of the Year Award for Outstanding Franchise Support was a great achievement with such a successful and impressive group of companies on the shortlist.

“If you’re a management professional, looking for a fresh challenge, job security, high earning potential, great training and support, will be high on your list. An Auditel franchise offers all of the above. We shall be very happy to meet you at one of the free Discovery Seminars that Sarah found so useful.”
