Two new franchise owners have recently joined the Auditel network and will now provide a cost management service to business owners.

Claire Sharp (pictured) has joined Auditel from a background in senior management in financial services marketing. Debbie Davies, who has also recently joined the franchise, previously working as a Commercial Director for a large newspaper group in the Midlands. Both Sharp and Davies were facing redundancy and started to research franchising as a career opportunity.

Sharp said: “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. Infrastructure, brand, matching my skill set, an opportunity to be successful and flexibility.”

Both found the training very effective. Sharp said: “It was very informative and I feel prepared to get going.” Davies added: “Excellent, fun and enjoyable. You are given an assurance that you are ready to ‘do the job’.”

Sharp continued: “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, Franchise Development Director at Auditel, said: “This group reflects our wide-ranging potential to satisfy the aims of those seeking a career change. It included one partnership, a franchise owner joining an existing business and Clair 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 franchise owners.”
