Pentagon: Secure your financial future

With a decade of experience in debt management, Pentagon offers a home or office based business that's both financially and personally rewarding. Rachel Spaul reports

'With total UK personal debt in excess of £1.2 trillion and levels of unmanageable debt rising, there is a clear need for services like ours and this provides an important opportunity for individuals who can work to our exacting customer service standards,' reveals Pentagon National Sales Director Graham Dennis.

Pentagon franchisees are licensed debt adjusters trained to assess and offer advice to consumers struggling to manage their finances. Franchisees make an initial visit to a potential client to assess their financial situation. They then compile financial evidence to support the case and pass it to the Pentagon head office team.

'Pentagon is the UK's only debt management company to focus on home visits as a core component of its client liaison,' adds Graham. 'We have established almost 200,000 agreements with creditors and over 15,000 active Debt Management Plans with UK consumers and have a strong track record working with creditors to freeze interest and charges. We also provide a unique pre-paid credit card for people in debt.'

Pentagon provides a comprehensive training and support package, which includes an initial four-day residential training course. This is complemented by one month of mentoring from an experienced franchisee including a training de-brief, accompanied client visits and mentoring. Franchisees are also supported by a call centre, which generates initial leads, and a team of account managers and legal advisors.

'Every case earns the franchisee an initial payment and a monthly residual income based on what the client can afford, calculated on their income and expenditure, and a percentage of the payment to each lender,' explains Graham.

'Franchisees can potentially turnover in the region of £100,000 per annum. Some of our franchisees are achieving turnovers of £200,000 plus. The amount franchisees can earn depends on the individual and their commitment to the business, but compared with an initial investment of just £24,995 plus VAT, there is a considerable earning potential. We also provide franchisees with a retirement plan, so that when they retire they continue to receive an income.'

While experience of the financial services or consumer advice sectors is desirable, Graham is keen to point out that it is not essential. It is more important that franchisees possess good interpersonal skills, are empathic and comfortable meeting people face-to-face in their homes.
